Foot Traffic

  • The weekend run
    The weekend run highlights favorite long routes in and around the city. This week, we explore the east side of the River Greenway.
  • Balancing training as a running family
    When my husband offered to pace me for the Fort4Fitness half marathon, I was worried about one thing - the potential that the stress of training might cause us to snap, nit pick or kill each other.
  • Fort4Fitness Training: Where to be and what to do
    For those following a 12-week plan for Fort4Fitness, it is the thick of training. The runs are getting harder and the miles longer.

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.
