Anyone here but I think that Karen Burt is Sexy?

Maybe I am getting old but Karen Burt ( the yoga instructor in Cycling Plus magazine) sets off my HRM beeper!
Gotta love a woman that limber!! Everytime I try those moves it takes a bottle of advil to get me unkinked.

Consider that she could be "daughter" to many of us. Now, if she has an older sister, well, aunt.....perhaps grandmother? Best for most of us to stick to pie. I find that, as other systems seem to deflate with age, my appetite (for food) maintains quite vigorously.

Now, I'm not one of those arch conservative types who thinks that people never change, and therefore emminantly predictable. But having said that, I'm imagining velonomad moving upstair from Karen Burt's studio, signing up for every class she teaches a week, and nearly killing himself trying to impress her!!!

Gotta' concur here with 'Chain, especially about grandmothers who [I'm here to attest] need kind attention too. Give her 20 years and a few more life's lessons and I'll re-consider. 'Til then a gal like that triggers my fatherly instincts.

Lest this noble gathering doubt my standing in the Testosterone Hall of Fame, I'll remind you that the Crack of Dawn has to watch her step here at Hascienda Coyote most mornings. Old 'Dawn has enough years and experience to get my attention.

Pie ain't bad either.

Iyyyeeeeee-Yip-Yip!!!

emminantly predictable? guilty as charged!
She is teaching a class at Oxford and my son is headed to Oxford next year. I am sure my son needs help getting moved in to Oxford........ Of course one look at me and she would probaly have a stroke from laughter.

The oldest I've ever felt in my life was after watching a Cirque du Soleil performance. I used to be able to do those things - and now I can't anymore!

I don't read Cycling Plus. But after seeing the ads for Discovery Channel's Daily Planet during OLN's Tour coverage, I have become a secret admirer of Natasha Stilwell...

Natasha Stilwell.jpg

She has a sort of geek attraction, and sometimes whoever does her hair really screws up, and her voice can often be loud and somewhat grating, but I love her Edinburgh accent and I think she's HOT!

I prefer a woman closer to my age. Lynne Russell used to be an anchor on CNN Headline News, then retired about 5 years ago. She is now living in Toronto and doing part-time news on CBC Newsworld. She is late 50's and the sexiest woman on TV. Eat your heart out, Atlanta, we have her now.

If you lose that hormone and need to make another hormone, just refuse to pay her.

Yup. . .can we add another mature news woman, Susan Spencer? [http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/1998/...in15205.shtml] She prolly hates cyclists.

You can lead a horticulture but you can't make her think!
