Foot Traffic

  • Let the training begin!
    They say what doesn't kill you makes you stronger, and never have I banked on those words as much as I have when picking out a training plan for Fort4Fitness.
  • In training: Meet Tami
    Meet Tami Brigle. She is a northwest Ohio resident who works in Fort Wayne. She began running a little more than a year ago, starting with Couch to 5K. Running helped her lose 55 pounds (she's lost 105 pounds total).
  • Triple play
    If one is good and two is better, what does that make three? I'd be inclined to say crazy but others might call it a challenge.

Shooter's Comments:

In my quest for new angles on old subjects, I decided to go high for the Spy Run Creek bridge reconstruction. Contract Interiors is a flooring company at Clinton and Jacobs streets in an old three-story building. When I asked if I could get on the roof the man said, "I don't know, we've never been up there." So up two flights of stairs, two ladders into the elevator mechanical room, up a four-foot wall onto the back roof and another short ladder onto the front roof and I was there.

Climbing down is always a bit trickier.
