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 wish there had been a block like the one on Third Street back when I was a little trick-or-treater. The entire 600 block is decked out with decorations. From bodies hanging from trees to bloody bodies on stretchers. I took a bunch of photos, so it was hard to pick one. I think the above photo about sums it up.
