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:

I didn't realize how much fun it would be to cover James Coffey at the Allen County Public Library Plaza Stage, until I arrived and saw all the kids up and dancing. Coffey has quite a large fan base. Some groupies, overwhelmed with delight, climbed up onto the stage and had to be carried off.

I used a little fill flash to help fill in the shadows of mid-afternoon sun.
