Hundreds of eager women gathered in Coachman Park early Saturday morning on April 4th to compete in the annual Aflac Iron Girl Women’s 10k and 5k race. Women came from many locales, some from as far as Indiana, Texas and even Canada to run, and ages ranged from 5 years old to 81. Despite the diversity of the participants, most of the women had the same goal: satisfaction. The satisfaction of participating, the satisfaction of reaching the finish line, the satisfaction of knowing they did it for themselves.

Clearwater, FL (February 2009) - It was a quiet Sunday morning, as tranquil as the sport itself, on which the Florida State Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) golf tournament was held. Floridian youth from within a 100-mile radius of the Chi Chi Rodriguez Golf Club on McMullen-Booth Road came to compete in the tournament.

In a white golf cart sat one young participant next to his father. He clutched his golf club as he waited for his turn, round face full of outhful enthusiasm and zest for the game. "That’s Mason Fox,” a man said. “He’s one of the best fourteen-year olds in the state. But don’t tell him that, it’ll go straight to his head.”

Palm Beach International Raceway, Jupiter, FL (March 2009) - Greg Gorman, riding a 2008 Kawasaki ZX-10R prepared by Corsa Motorworks, was finally able to display his cornering skills at a track that has connected turns, not just hairpin turns leading to straights.  He was able to run lap times that were only 2.5 to 3 seconds slower than the best lap times of the event. The Way to Happiness Racing Team finished in the top ten of all four races it entered and had a best ever finish of 4th place.
