Bio: I know not every run, or swim, or yoga pose, or day or dream or anything else, can be everything we want it to be. But there's beauty and benefit to be gleaned from everything. That's what I believe (OK, most of the time)! It's what I try to convey in my personal writing and for "The Dallas Morning News" (where I cover health & fitness). If my optimism wavers a bit, my son Charlie (a workout fiend himself) jostles me into a reminder that life is indeed a blessing.
