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've always wanted to stop and photograph the skateboarders in the Lawton Skate Park so today, while driving around looking for something interesting, I thought I'd swing by and see if anyone was in the park.

A couple of riders were practicing their jumps and said it would be alright for me to snap some pics. I got as close to the edge as I could, while not being in their way, and shot away. They didn't disappoint with their jumps and riding the rails.
