Sexy Stiletto Shoes, Teva Hiking Sandals, or both? You betcha!


I want these Teva hot-girl shoes. I’m natural and organic and outdoorsy in real life, I swear it. These are right up my alley. I will now try to find the right people who can give me a pair of these beauties so I can review them for you and tell you if you should […]

Politics and Beauty: Will Brains, Botox, or Photoshop get me to the White House?


Maybe I should run for President. There is talk of it. Okay, it’s me talking. Mostly. But I think it could be fun. I’d get new clothes, right? I used to think I’d be a horrible politician, because I’m not interested in politics, or politicians, or the intricacies of policy and law-making. Or fighting with […]

Sarah Palin Looks Just Like Me! Should I run for President, or just get my own reality show?


Sarah Palin for President? Huh. It could work out well for me, actually. Some people think I look like she does, so maybe I’d get some bonus perks if I walked into a coffee shop, or a hunting lodge, or on set at Fox News, or into the oval office. Maybe I should run for […]

The Sexy Side of Carrots: Healthy Junk Food? Baby. Carrots. Extreme!


They’re sweet. They’re crunchy. They’re delicious. But are carrots really the new sexy? Sure, they prevent heart attacks, strokes, and cancer, and they’re easy on the eyes, but so do the doctors on Grey’s Anatomy (okay, those are people, I know they’re not real doctors, or vegetables — work with me here!) I thought baby […]

Best Friends and Birthdays: the gift of hanging out with old BFF’s


I’m the one in the pink dress. 1983 was a good year. Which is better, new BFF’s or old BFF’s? Making new best friends is easy – I’ve been doing it since the day I was born. In fact, on my actual birth-day, my mom claims she liked me right away. I’d like to think […]

Spiritual Running: Listen to Your Body’s Inner Voices


Are you religious, or spiritual, or both? How about neither? Are you looking for God, or the Buddha within? Do you see angels or feel like you’ve lived a few (or 100) past lives and you may have 1,000 more, or do you think this life is it, your one chance to go for it? And what […]

Real Women, Real Runners, Real Running Club


Funny how a bunch of people standing around wearing matching shirts looks like a club! Because, hey, we ARE real, after all. Just like Velveteen Rabbits. These lovely ladies joined me for a photo at Amazon Running Trail in Eugene today for an upcoming article in the Eugene Register-Guard’s Health and Fitness section about the […]

Kick Boxing with Hilary Swank and Black Eyed Peas: My Boom Boom Pow Moment


I went to Robin’s kick boxing class again tonight. I taped up my bloody knuckles, put on some gloves, and hit the bag with some left hooks, right hooks, jabs and pivot kicks. And I learned some super duper fancy footwork, to boot. Okay, I used a Band Aid and they were just little scabs […]
