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.
  • Fort4Fitness: The race recap
    "There was a witch, in Williams-Woodland," my husband said. "Don't you remember her?" My reply was a blank stare.
  • In the bag
    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:

Using nine block-and-tackle rigs, a Parks and Recreation crew hoists a 900-square-feet mesh gallery for the Butterflies of Belize exhibit, Monday at the Foellinger Freimann Botanical Conservatory. The new show runs April 16 through June 26.

Shooter's Comments: It took quad block-and-tackle sets to raise this tent, and after the Parks and Recreation crew sorted out the twisted lines and one set of blocks mounted upside down, the tent went up rather smoothly. A very tall ladder standing nearby provided a vantage point for an overall view of the scene.
