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.
  • Fort4Fitness: The race recap
    "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:

The street department was a big help in getting this shot: a quick phone call led me directly to the neighborhood. Usually we have to drive around looking for trucks.

After getting the usual shots of the backhoe scooping up leaves, I saw the morning light filtering through the trees and hitting the side of the dump truck. So, I was ready when the sweeper moved into the beam. It made a nice autumnal scene.
