In need of inspiration

I'm hoping to get some help from my cyber-friends. I'm having trouble coming up with a heroine inspiration for my WIP. She is brunette, cute, natural looking, more comfortable in workout pants and t-shirt with her hair in a pony tail. She's in shape, and as a rock climbing instructor she's pretty tough. Any actresses coming to mind?

My initial though was Hilary Swank, but I'm rethinking that. She not quite cute enough for my mental image (I'm picturing brown doe eyes and a smattering of freckles--but the freckles are negotiable). Here is a picture of the hero, if that helps.

I'd love to hear any thoughts you have. I hope that once I have a clear visual of my heroine, my muse might just start working again.

How about Rachel Weisz I love her in The Mummy...and I could def see her as a climbing instructor. jx

Hmm. Sandra Bullock was the first one that sprang to mind for me.

Jessica Biel was my first thought. Take a look at pics from "I now pronounce you chuck and larry". She was also in Blade Trinity. She's young enough, but doesn't look too young for your male lead.
