Off and running at the Army Ten Miler
What happens when 35,000 runners gather for the Army’s annual 10 mile jaunt through Virginia and Washington, D.C.? Madness — at least at the starting line where the Pentagon parking lot became a massive, multi-colored sea of spandex and assorted breathable polyester blends. I was at last weekend’s Army Ten Miler on assignment for the non-profit Wear Blue: Run to Remember, whose members run in memory of family, friends and loved ones who have fallen in service to our country.
