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:

I don't play golf but I almost collected a birdie this morning at Orchard Ridge, while covering the Homestead regional tournament. As I was turning to leave the third hole I almost stepped on this baby bird. Apparently unable to fly yet, it still has fuzz on its head. It should be ok, as long as the carts stay on the path.
