  • Road racers: Incorporating events into training
    It's exciting that there's so many events available to runners, and it can be easy to caught up with enthusiasm and register for a number of events. However, when focusing on a target race such as Fort4Fitness, one needs to be prudent when selecting
  • What goes down must come up
    There is a line of T-shirts emblazoned with the phrase "Embrace the Hill." For the creator, a runner and mom, the phrase is about life and running.
  • Time after time
    I had everything all worked out. My courteous and gracious in-laws would walk the 4-mile Fort4Fitness event, pushing my 3-year-old in the stroller. My husband and I would see them off at 7:30 a.

Shooter's Comments:

Friday I went to the Mega Match-A-Thon sponsored by ASPCA at Fort Wayne Animal Care & Control. I went at noon, when the event started, thinking that it might be too early in the day to go. I was wrong. About 50 people were lined up at the door of the Fort Wayne Animal Care & Control waiting for the opportunity to adopt a pet.

While I was taking photos of people looking for a dog, one of adoption specialists came in and took a Labrador retriever out of its cage. I followed her to see who was meeting the puppy.

Jennifer Lawson was on the ground with Castiel, the name she is giving him. I sat on the ground to be at the same level and took photos as the two got to know each other. It was a perfect match and Lawson took Castiel home the same day.
