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:

Shooter's Comments: Do you remember when you were learning to play an instrument? In case you forgot, I have put together a video of students learning to play the violin at Club O. The class is taught by Derek Reeves, but video shows Joe Kalisman who was substituting for Reeves.

I tried not to make the video too long. Sensitive ears may still have some difficulties. If you watch the video you will find the students are doing well and may someday be playing for the Philharmonic.
