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.

Shooter's Comments:

After weeks of construction coverage they finally opened the MLK Bridge on Wednesday. I parked around the corner of 4th and Harrison streets and walked through the mud to Clinton in time to get photos of the barricade crew moving the orange barrels.

The new arches on the bridge make for dramatic views and angles and it will be even more cool when they get the lighting installed. As the first cars rolled across, some of the iron workers cheered from their cherry pickers. I was the first pedestrian to walk across the new walkway.
