The world doesn’t revolve around football, basketball and baseball — and we know it! The “Out and About” blog covers athletes with Santa Cruz County ties in sports such as surfing, cycling, skateboarding, climbing and many others. It is run by writers for the Santa Cruz Sentinel and select posts from it are published weekly in print in the Outside section.

Freelancer Karen Kefauver is not only an avid cyclist, but also a sports and travel journalist whose column “Spin City” regularly appears on the Sentinel website. Contact her through email here, or visit her website.

Julie Jag, Sports Editor of the Sentinel, is a native Coloradan who loves a good workout as much as a good adventure, which are oftentimes chronicled in her “Out There” or “Snow Job” columns. Have a strange or interesting story to share with her? Contact her here.
