'Biggest Loser' shows she's a winner

The Biggest Loser star Ali Vincent showed why she's one of the biggest winners at the American Heart Association's Go Red Luncheon on Wednesday in Tampa.

Vincent, who became the reality show's first female winner after losing 122 pounds, not only spoke about losing weight and being healthy, but also shared the importance of high self-esteem and "loving yourself" to a sold-out crowd of 350, most of them women. Strong message. …

The Florida Bank Miles For Moffitt event organizers expect a record turnout of more than 4,000 for Saturday's run-walk event at the USF Sun Dome, but the event actually begins Friday night with an ultra run at the USF track.

I want to personally thank Adriana Colina, who agreed to step in for me as the host of Head Start's annual breakfast Friday at the University Club in Tampa. I had to opt out to help my daughter's school with its own event, but I'm so grateful Adriana is bailing me out.

Frank Sanchez will be the keynote speaker, and the event honors Frank's mom, Head Start pioneer Delia Sanchez. Call (813) 653-9083 for tickets.

That's all I'm saying. …
