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: This took a long time to develop, at One Summit Square, Thursday. I kept an eye on Sophia for a while, hoping she'd start dancing to the music of Sugar Shot. Eventually a family friend started blowing bubbles for her to chase around the plaza. A cute photo, but it would have been better if a large bubble was visible.
