Triathlon Trial Lawyer Doug Landau was thrilled to be joined this year by his friend, and top New York City Trial Lawyer Stephen Peskin and his wife Victoria. The 102nd Annual Meet was notable for numerous false starts in the 60-yard dash and exciting races at the mile distance over the 11-lap, steeply banked wooden track. Landau first ran indoor track for Boston University on a similar wooden, banked track. In Meets at M.I.T., Harvard University and the University of Virginia, he raced in the 600, 800, 1500 and mile. The Herndon Reston area injury and disability lawyer hopes to race in the USAT&F‘s National Master’s Indoor Track and Field Championships in Landover Maryland in March.
