By Leonard Pitts Jr | September 30, 1998
SHE WAS a vision of speed and power, glamour and beauty. Of which, the last two were the most surprising. One does not expect to come across dazzle and loveliness in the world of track and field. It's a fish-out-of-water surprise, not unlike a red rose found blooming among wildflowers at the side of the road.Me, I was never a big fan of the sport. But I'd always pause -- you simply had to pause -- when Florence Griffith Joyner was running. Not just because she won races and set records, but because she did so with long, painted nails, sexy track suits, and a silky mane flowing behind her, all serving to accentuate a compelling native beauty.

AEGIS STAFF REPORT | April 22, 2013
The latest fitness craze, FloYo (stand-up paddleboard yoga) has come to the pool at Bel Air Athletic Club, in cooperation with Ultimate Watersports. FloYo is a fusion of yoga and Pilates; the class blends the fundamentals of each discipline while incorporating the added core challenge of balancing on a standup paddleboard (SUP). Both core and flexibility training are used to lengthen and strengthen the body. If you have mastered your downward facing dog and sun salutations on the mat, you will be pleasantly surprised by the challenge of trying these same poses on the unstable surface of a SUP. Because the poses are being performed on a moving surface, you will be engaging muscles that you would not normally, and because the poses have to be aligned just perfectly for even weight distribution on the boards, you will not only be benefiting from a challenging class but you will also be improving your in-studio yoga practice as well.

It wasn't so much the gold medals, which she won in triplicate. It wasn't so much the times, which some people found literally unbelievable. It was the style -- racy and edgy and undeniably glam.Florence Griffith Joyner, who died of an apparent heart seizure yesterday at 38, was a race car done up in Day-Glo, a sprinter who stopped the show merely by spreading her polished six-inch nails on the starting line.FloJo was fluorescent. She turned up for the world championships in a clingy bodysuit that might have been borrowed from the Cat Woman's closet.

Kyneshi Jeter, 3, still turns the heads of fellow joggers at Montebello Park, even though they've seen her run 10 miles without stopping every other day for the past month.
