The Nations Triathlon in Washington, D.C. takes participants past an unmatched cornucopia of national monuments, such as the White House, National Mall, Lincoln Memorial, Washington Monument, Kennedy Center, FBI Building, Vietnam Veterans Memorial, etc. But what was equally inspiring were the funds raised to help others and the courage of those racers in the purple outfits who battled heat, humidity, exhaustion and pain for a noble cause. Triathlon Trial Lawyer Doug Landau and several of his Maccabiah teammates participated in the 3rd annual DC Nations Triathlon that raised money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma societies.
As the race was about to begin, with 3,600 athletes jumping into the Potomac River to swim, it was announced that the “Team in Training” (“TNT”) program had raised $900,000,000 ! My teammate and friend Steve Shulman (the muscular guy in the purple TNT jersey) has become a Team in Training coach. By day, he is a busy lawyer in New York City with a hectic real estate practice. But outside of work, he devotes time to help others so that they can participate in, and finish multisport events, while raising funds for an important cause. ABRAMS LANDAU client Rob Urbach won their age group, with Shulman 4th and Landau, despite standing on his tippy toes in this picture, way back.
