Foot Traffic

  • The weekend run
    The weekend run highlights favorite long routes in and around the city. This week, we explore the east side of the River Greenway.
  • Balancing training as a running family
    When my husband offered to pace me for the Fort4Fitness half marathon, I was worried about one thing - the potential that the stress of training might cause us to snap, nit pick or kill each other.
  • Fort4Fitness Training: Where to be and what to do
    For those following a 12-week plan for Fort4Fitness, it is the thick of training. The runs are getting harder and the miles longer.

Sweetwater's "Band On The Roof," performed a Beatles set on top of the Embassy Theatre marquee to promote GearFest '11. Kenny Taylor on guitar and vocals is an instructor at Sweetwater Sound Inc. A group of bystanders stopped to listen to Beatles' "Get Back," and "Something." GearFest is Sweetwater's annual trade show and music festival. It is free to the public and is June 24 & 25 at the Sweetwater campus at 5501 US Hwy 30 W.

Editor's Note: Sometimes a photo works best because of what the viewer can't see. Laura chose a steep angle here, to isolate the guitar player against the background. There were other shots where more of the band was visible, but this made for the most dramatic image.
