f you haven’t noticed, it’s hot, humid and frankly unbearable this summer, which makes functioning quite difficult. The last thing I want to do is get outside and move, but I love to exercise outside! So, I’ve been trying to get runs in early or later CARLA VALENCIA DE MARTINEZ at night and sprinkling bike rides in the mix as well. I’ve found I have to mix it up, which is shocking coming from the woman who swore by yoga only!

For this issue we took on the task of checking out new fitness routines available around town – check it out on page 38. And you couldn’t have missed our beautifully fit cover gal, Cari Shoemate! Read all about how she kicks butt on page 48. We’ve also got a few pages of active beauty products, clothes and more. So what are you waiting for? Start reading and get inspired to move. On a serious note, in our July issue we published an article, Wise Guy Tim Moloney’s “Gypped,” without thinking about its consequences, and we now owe all of our readers an apology. We respect Tim for his wit and his writing ability, but this column was written too hastily and too emotionally after he was duped by off-the-street car repairmen. Racist remarks, harassment, sexist remarks, ageism prejudices, religious intolerance, etc., hurt us all. As editors we accepted this piece too hastily, not objecting immediately and strongly at the slur inferred. Shame on all of us. Including the scam artists. For information on the Roma people and the persecution of them even today we direct you to, The University of Texas Romani Archives and Documentation Center.
