As a female athlete, I’m always wondering how my professional brethren are doing, particularly in those sports that I engage in.

This winter, it’s all about the snowboarding, and I had the very good fortune of watching it from the coziness of my leather chair.

And as for my mountain biking staycation, well it was short-lived. Like the rest of the country, we’re experiencing an Ice Age. If there’s enough snow for cross-country skiing, you betcha I’ll be out tomorrow morning.
