Always looking to combine races when he travels for cases, seminars, speeches and family, Doug Landau has registered for the Virginia DUathlon which is being contested the same week as the Virginia Trial Lawyer Annual Convention in Williamsburg. The Herndon Reston area lawyer will forego the “Fun Run,” and serve as a volunteer for that sporting event as well as the Tennis Tournament he sponsors each year in order to rest up for the very competitive “VaDu.” The run-bike-run format will enable the sports injury lawyer to assess his fitness 30 days prior to the US National DUathlon Championships. The USAT “Duathlon Festival” will be contested for the third, and final year, in Downtown Richmond, thanks to the wonderful efforts of the Richmond Sports Backers.
Landau’s results the past two years have not been stellar, but he has worked hard through the winter to get his cycling and running legs in shape for these important early season races. The peripatetic trial lawyer hopes that by “front loading” his early season, and not signing up for any full Olympic Distance Triathlons, he will be able to perform well at both the US National Duathlon short course road championship in April AND the US National Sprint Triathlon Championship in Alabama in late September. Landau will be in Richmond the end of April in order to teach on the Virginia Supreme Court’s “New Judges’ Training Program.” The ABRAMS LANDAU litigator will also be back in Richmond several times in May and June in order to teach at the annual Tort Law Seminar and for family and social functions.
