Doug Landau toed the starting line in East Potomac Park at the Race For Equal Justice, where Landau had won the Community Member category of this Washington, D.C. race. Intending to “train through” this 5km, Lawyer Landau wanted to run the 5 km, then bike around Hains Point, and then run again (while the 10km racers were still on the course) for a challenging “brick workout” to prepare for future Duathlon races. Despite the cold, he finished 6th over all !
The Equal Justice Foundation annual Race for Equal Justice was held in March at beautiful East Potomac Park in Washington, DC. The Park Service closed off the course to all vehicle traffic during the race. This made for a very safe venue for athletes and spectators.
