Foot Traffic

  • Let the training begin!
    They say what doesn't kill you makes you stronger, and never have I banked on those words as much as I have when picking out a training plan for Fort4Fitness.
  • In training: Meet Tami
    Meet Tami Brigle. She is a northwest Ohio resident who works in Fort Wayne. She began running a little more than a year ago, starting with Couch to 5K. Running helped her lose 55 pounds (she's lost 105 pounds total).
  • Triple play
    If one is good and two is better, what does that make three? I'd be inclined to say crazy but others might call it a challenge.

Shooter's Comments: On Thursday, I went to Timothy L. Johnson's first day of school. I can't believe school is in session already. I took photos of a classroom of second graders.

School never changes. You could tell that some kids were excited to be there and others seemed a little bored. I took a photo of the group listening to the teacher read a book. I like all the different facial expressions in this photo.
