Marathon Madness is Over!

The SunTrust National Marathon was not only a great race, but a great day yesterday, especially frm my post at RK Stadium. It was inspiring to see each and every runner cross the finish line.

I had been following the stories of several of our runners (mostly for press pitches) and was happy to report a three-peat win for Michael Wardian (2006, 2007, 2008 National Marathon winner!), PR times for Mayor Adrian Fenty and WMZQ’s Brian Egan (who ran for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society) and that our women’s half was won by our own local running diva, Samia Akbar. We wish her luck as she goes o

n to compete in the women’s marathon olympic trials next month!

Can you spot me? I’m behind the Mayor and 150 DC kids, who completed the final mile of the Junior Monumental Milers Program, in yellow 🙂
