She fits on a pair of headphones, hits play on a Bee Gees mix tape, and gallops into the darkness. While some women would worry if out alone at night, Rohrback is bereft of concern. She has Prancercise®. The exercise, she says, will protect her. "Prancercise® is uninhibited," she says. "I don't feel scared doing it. I always feel light. All the stress in my life passes, and I feel empowered. I feel awe."

And perhaps this is the power of Prancercise®. It's not intended to get you ripped or marathon-ready. It's meant to make you feel weightless. That's why Rohrback was so adamant about hovering on her book cover. When you trot like a horse, you lose yourself in the absurdity of the act, and every worry suddenly dissolves. It's why Rohrback loves Prancercise® and why it returns to her at times she needs it most.

Richard Simmons was right. "Joanna's like Judy Garland walking down the yellow brick road. When I started, everyone laughed at me too, because I'm certainly not a handsome person. All the handsome men and women laughed at me and told me I'd never make it. But people who succeed are those who are persistent."

Forty-five minutes after Rohrback began her Prancercise® loop through the streets, she returns to her house. She can't Prancercise® as far she used to. "I'm 60 years old now," she says. Taking long equine strides, she steps up to her door and walks inside her house. She has no idea how many calories she just burned, and she doesn't care.

That's a woman? Camel toe or not, I am not convinced.

She's having fun, OK. She's not hurting anybody, fine, unless you count reinforcing Florida's reputation for weapons-grade insane. But dear author... "tragically beautiful features"? Are we watching the same video? Until the notorious camel-toe appeared, I was willing to swear that this was Paul Giamatti in drag!

otherwise we have here a typical yenta who came across something that inspired HER and she has found they way to spread the word to anyone else who might be interested as well YET she wants to be compensated which is okay also

funnier is the more typical disconnect between her generation (and mine) and the uses and abuses of an interconnected wireless world of nameless friends, enemies, the merely curious and outright critical - who will never ever meet face to face

otherwise who is she harming ?

BUKs women were tragic because of their self-destructive habits and as they ranged in age from very young to senior i don't know if any particular physically feature is attributable to them certainly they all had apparent mental conditions resulting in some various and destinctive traits - but anyway thanks for mentioning BUK
