Editorial Reviews

Dawn Blunk

Feeeel the energy. Toss your drooping spirit - and drooping buns -into the Babehood and get inflamed with a new kind of energy. Be one of the thousands to go from sagging to sass as you experience the personal journey of one boomer whose encounter with a pair of inline skates changes her life, and the thousands who join her. Join this spunky blader who wows crowds with her antics and whose passion for inline skating and self-fulfillment has people asking how they can become a part of the "Babe-buzz."
