The Editor who is thrilled to play tennis again!
Myles Hefland (photo above) wrote me an email and said, "I'm an out-of-practice tennis lover who just came across your site, and would love to get back into the game. I've only played twice in the past few years, so I'm extremely rusty, but I'm probably around a 2.5 right now, with a first serve that's a little bit better than the rest of my game. At the moment, I'm looking more to get back into the swing of things." After doing tennis drills last Tuesday, May 23, Myles said smiling, "I think I'm going to sleep well tonight!" BTW, Myles is the Editor of the online magazine, www.TheBody.com
