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.

Shooter's Comments:

This took me by surprise, obviously. I was on my way out of the dugout and headed for the car, when I heard the PA announcer say she'd won a marriage proposal. I turned around, pulled the camera from my shoulder and got what I could. This would have been much better from the other direction, to get her reaction. Maybe next time the TinCaps will let me know, in advance.
