Darryl Ewing (UT Journalism 1988, LHB Section Leader and Second Councilor) has completed a book on fitness for busy professionals titled, “Back in the Saddle to Fit: 10 Steps to Reclaiming Athletic Fitness for the Busy Professional.” Because of Darryl’s strong ties to LHB and LHAB, he will be selling and signing his book during Alumni Band Weekend and donating $5 for every book sold through LHAB as long-term fund-raiser for the LHB Scholarship Fund.
The book has a burnt orange-tinge, from its cover and interviews with UT exes Olympian Sanya Richards-Ross and marathon enthusiast Larry Macon to Darryl’s own inspiration for getting fit: a chance encounter with former Longhorn QB Peter Gardere. Darryl will be selling the book after Friday’s rehearsal and Saturday afternoon’s rehearsal. The book retails for $20.95. For those not attending Band Weekend, it also can be purchased using the PayPal link at www.bitstofit.com and entering LHAB as the promo code.
For those who are around on Thursday, Aug. 29, Darryl is doing a Happy Hour book signing for friends at Casa Chapala Downtown, 101 San Jacinto Street, beginning at 6 p.m. You can e-mail questions to him at darryl@bitstofit.com.
