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.
  • 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: The end of the school year means field trips to the park, zoo, etc. On Friday I went to the park and found this prekindergarten teacher sliding down the slide with her students. They were having a blast.

It was obvious this teacher was very well-liked by the students. I thought this was a nice expressive shot by the students and teacher. It was also an overcast day, which makes for nice, soft lighting.
