Dawn Marano in Pilates Style

Dawn Marano, the fabulously talented, dream of an editor of my book, Miraculous Air, back when it was published with University of Utah Press (it's just out now in paperback with Milkweed Editions) has since gone freelance with Dawn Marano & Associates. But her own writing is powerful and quite fascinating. To get a taste of it, check out this month's issue of Pilates Style, in which she recounts her story with figure skating. She was an accomplished skater but after a severe injury, she had to give it up. Years later, it was her dedication to a regimen of pilates that gave her the strength and flexibility to return to the ice and now, at the age of 50, she is competing on the national circuit. It's an amazing and inspiring story.
