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:

Editor's Note: Sometimes even really nice photos might not make it into the print edition of the newspaper. There are many reasons for this.

Big news can break, classifieds or obituaries can be longer than expected, or we can simply not have enough room for all of the great work we do.

One of the advantages of the internet is that we can publish without worrying about the amount of space needed. Swikar shot this photo on Wednesday, on his way home. I think it's hauntingly lovely.

Also, fortunately, anyone who picked up Friday's paper got to see this picture, too. In color, which is not always possible. So, this is one of those times when we did get our favorite photos into the newspaper.
