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: I went to the Roanoke Renaissance Art Fair and did both stills and video. For the video, I mixed a combo of video, stills and just used music that a band was playing. It turned out a little choppy and kind of weird. What are your thoughts, viewers?

I had a nice time as usual meeting people and getting a glimpse of life stories. There was some awesome art. I met an artist who inspired me to want to paint more... if only I had that time. Someday.
