SACRAMENTO, California
Racquetball woman!!! I work out everyday -- 4 times a week I play racquetball, 3 times a week. I kick box, turbo box and take a strong class. I eat healthy and learn everything I can about staying fit and young. I study everything that deals with helping my friends, family and me. If I can help others, all the better. I am in the spirit of play -- let's create and have a blast doing it.
