  • Core training for running: Tips from a Pilates instructor

  • Practice makes perfect
    The invitation was low key. Casual.  Just a friendly reminder that the F4F Practice Group run will be taking off from Baker Street Station at 7:30am on Saturday.

Shooter's Comments:

The Burmese Advocacy Center has new digs and we needed a photo. The director, Minn, gathered the staff for a group portrait, a shot I usually don't like to take. But, I lined them up in seats below a Burmese tapestry that featured a line up of (I'm assuming) famous Burmese people. After a few stiff images, they loosened up, laughing at how many photos I was taking - which made for a friendlier photo.
