raised funds for the Alexandria Bar Foundation. Established by the Fairfax Bar Association in 1982, the Fairfax Bar’s charitable Foundation supports local programs to improve the community’s access to justice and promote education regarding the legal system. The Fairfax Bar Foundation’s programs are wide ranging from making a difference in the life of school students to ensuring everyone, no matter what economic background, has an equal access to justice. The Fairfax Law Foundation is making a real difference in the Northern Virginia region.

While it was hot and humid, the rain held and the competitors raced over the hilly 5km course. Doug Landau had won the Sport & Health 5km for the National Orthopedic Hospital on this same course several years ago, but could only muster 7 minute miles today. The sports injury and disabled athletes’ lawyer finished 15th out of 235, in 21:40 (for 3rd place Masters). No excuses; this is simply not fast enough to be among the top overall prizewinners. The Triathlon Trial Lawyer then went on a nearly 50 mile bike ride past the Town of Leesburg before taking in his daughter’s soccer match in Loudoun County. So it was a typical busy sports-filled weekend for the ABRAMS LANDAU litigator, who is now sore, but not injured and already planning on racing better the next time he “toes the starting line.”
