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.

Shooter's Comments: A room full of first graders is a room filled with excited chatter. Especially when there are hands-on demonstrations and role playing involved! All hands were raised eagerly every time a volunteer was asked for, and when Anika Bobeck was chosen to re-enact a bee gathering nectar she was all smiles and willingness. For me it became just a matter of timing to capture her in the moment.
