Tidal Basin Presidential Fitness Runs
Washington DC
Monday, February 21, 2011

Tidal Basin Run, a partner of the President's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports, hosted its second Presidential Fitness Runs of 2011 on the Presidents' Day holiday, on USATF-certified course DC04001RT with appropriate modifcations.
Ted Poulos repeated as winner in the mile; Mike Cannon boomed to first place in the 3K; Andrew Foose made his family proud, winning the 5K; and Karsten Brown -- one day after winning George Washington's Birthday Marathon -- clobbered the 10K.
Margaret W. Smith headed off Cathy Ross to set a new women's event record in the 10K.
We gleefully sang "Happy Birthday" to Robert Gurtler, mayor of The Plains VA and frequent participant.
