Doug Landau “beats the heat” at the 1st Annual “Spotsy Sprint” YMCA Triathlon, and then helps “Racin’ Mason” in her first race

Mason_ALlen___Doug_Landau_pre_race.jpegDriving down to Fredericksburg, past the Courthouse where many serious injury cases have been won, Doug Landau could not help but notice the temperature rising to record levels.  Nevertheless, the Triathlon Trial Lawyer performs well in high heat and humidity.  He was confident, having won the Biathlon (Swim-Run) at the Spotsylvania YMCA 2 years ago.  And the Reston Herndon injury lawyer was excited to be biking on Route 1, Jefferson Davis Highway.  After a slow pool swim, Landau picked off competitors and arrived with a screeching transition for the run through the woods and bog.  Doug was able to finish first in the Masters category, second among the men and third overall. Landau noted that the 2 competitors ahead of him had a combined age of less than his 47 years !  He enjoyed biking past the Spotsylvania Circuit Court house, where he has tried personal injury and workers compensation cases over the last 25 years.  .More exciting than collecting his awards, Landau enjoyed helping 7-year-old “Racin’ Mason” Allen to race in her first triathlon.  This wonderful Fredericksburg girl had just had her first swim practice this week.  Her father, Edward Allen of Allen, Allen, Allen & Allen, purchased her pink bicycle the day before the race !  Mason swam with a smile, and finished in style.
