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: The Eden Green apartment complex, like most apartment complexes, appears to be a very private and insular neighborhood. Even more so on a cold morning in the middle of the week. But after driving around for just a few minutes, I discovered a team of gentlemen mopping floors in the buildings and picking up litter and they were more than willing to be photographed for the story.

There were also a few camera-shy residents who declined the honor With better weather and a little more time, I could have found more people outside.
