INDIANAPOLIS - The USA Track & Field Foundation is pleased to announce the launching of Director's Cut, a new blog by Ashley Wright, Foundation Director. Her initial entry is entitled Hot Tamales (or how to stay in shape during the holidays!).

Mary Wineberg, Mechelle Lewis, Tiffany Williams, Dan Huling, Loree Smith, Ian Waltz, Diana Pickler, Britney Henry & Liz Roehrig all shared with Ashley their secrets, and often humorous takes, on eating, drinking & exercising during the holidays.

Along with the recent launch of the Foundation's Twitter page, Director's Cut will help to further promote the Foundation's mission within the track & field community and beyond.

Said Ashley, "Very few fans get to know the athletes outside of results and a blog would be a good way to share Foundation news, connect with youth teams and get to know our elites."

The Foundation thanks Ashley for her hard work in creating this blog, and we look forward to reading her future stories and anecdotes about the Foundation, its grantee athletes & more.

Director's Cut can be found on the USATF Foundation website: http://www.usatffoundation.org/about/ashley_wright_blog.asp.

The USATF Foundation provides a means to attract and guide funds to new and innovative track & field programs with an emphasis on providing opportunities for youth athletes, emerging elite athletes, distance training centers and anti-doping education. The Foundation depends upon donations from its Board of Directors and from generous fans of track & field.
