Foot Traffic

  • Let the training begin!
    They say what doesn't kill you makes you stronger, and never have I banked on those words as much as I have when picking out a training plan for Fort4Fitness.
  • In training: Meet Tami
    Meet Tami Brigle. She is a northwest Ohio resident who works in Fort Wayne. She began running a little more than a year ago, starting with Couch to 5K. Running helped her lose 55 pounds (she's lost 105 pounds total).
  • Triple play
    If one is good and two is better, what does that make three? I'd be inclined to say crazy but others might call it a challenge.

Eriberto Hernandez, left, and Antonio Rodriguez of R&C Fence install extra protection over a section of the Rivergreenway between Vesey Avenue and Juliette Avenue to protect walkers and bicyclists from rocks that were falling down from an overhead railroad bridge. The trail will be closed until the end of next week as decking on the boardwalk is replaced.

Shooter's Comments:

Today, while shooting photos of Rivergreenway trail repair, an insect flew in the sleeve of my shirt and started crawling around on my back. When I reached in behind me to remove the intruder, it stung me. I cried out in pain and all the contractors working on the project stopped what they were doing and just looked at me. "Something stung me," I felt I had to explain. They hadn't noticed I was there taking pictures until I screamed.

I think it was a bee or wasp. I never saw it. Avoid using the Rivergreen way trail between Vesey Avenue and Juliette Avenue until Friday of next week when repairs should be completed.
