  • 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.

Shooter's Comments: Church services are usually difficult to cover because I want to remain as unobtrusive as possible. But I saw this little girl before the service started and talked with her parents about taking her photo. Kids in church: they're all over the place. So, I just waited in the rear of the sanctuary for Fernanda to do her thing.
