Foot Traffic

  • What goes down must come up
    There is a line of T-shirts emblazoned with the phrase "Embrace the Hill." For the creator, a runner and mom, the phrase is about life and running.
  • Time after time
    I had everything all worked out. My courteous and gracious in-laws would walk the 4-mile Fort4Fitness event, pushing my 3-year-old in the stroller. My husband and I would see them off at 7:30 a.
  • Summer training update
    Four weeks have passed, and 117 miles have been ran since I officially began training for Fort4Fitness. The plan I selected is challenging, incorporating tempo VO2 max and threshold workouts.

Shooter's Comments:

It was the last day of school for North Side students and every year they have Pride Day to recognize the graduating seniors. It was filled with excitement and sadness. The frame above was from one of the performances during the event. The light was a bit challenging, but it worked well for this shot. It's always great when the crowd gets involved.
