Foot Traffic

  • Post-race thoughts on Fort4Fitness
    The air was cool and a chill traveled up my bare legs as I took that step out the door. A pit was in my stomach, churning. I sauntered to the starting point, giving my GPS watch time to find a satellite.

    "There was a witch, in Williams-Woodland," my husband said. "Don't you remember her?" My reply was a blank stare.

    I have my number - 14182. I have my shirt ... and luggage tag, magnet, pen, requisite goodies. I also have a coupon for a $1 drink at Parkview Field after the race tomorrow. Note to self:

Komets' Kaleigh Schrock celebrates goal 5 in the third period in game three of the playoff Wednesday at Memorial Coliseum.

The Best Shot

Shooter's Comments: Sometimes the best shot isn't used because of deadlines. On Wednesday night, I covered the first and second period of the game and managed to be at the wrong end of the ice when the Komets scored a goal.

I edited and transmitted photos during the first part of the third inning to make deadlines, and then went back to cover the rest of the game. I was at the right end of the ice this time and got this shot of Kaleigh Schrock celebrating his goal.

I then quickly sent in this photo just in case I could still make deadline. I got back in time to shoot the last minute of the game and the celebration that followed as the Komets won the first series of the playoffs.
