Fenty Back in Triathlon Saddle

Six weeks after suffering a serious bike accident, Mayor Fenty is scheduled to return to competitive action this weekend. He'll take part in the Nation's Triathlon in D.C. on Sunday, his office said today. The triathlon is in its second year and the mayor participated last year, as well. It's run by his friend Chuck Brodsky, who trains with Fenty once in a while and was pictured running with the mayor in this advertisement that drew some criticism because the mayor was wearing a Fleet Feet shirt. That's the store his parents own in Adams Morgan and the D.C. Republicans complained that it was improper for him to tout the store in a city-sponsored tourism ad.

wew - glad to hear it! I thought you might actually be reporting about Fenty's work as Mayor. you know, the stuff he crams in between running, biking and swimming. Glad to hear the guy can get back to his athletic endeavors.

It is nice to see the triathlon will afford a view of the "Capital Building."

Awesome news. Great to see the healthy recovery of our DC Mayor. Mayor Fenty has done a tremendous job in reforming the Nations Capitol. There are plenty of serious issues that immediately need Mayor Fenty full attention. Lead Paint Crisis, Popular Point Development,CFSA employee, Tax Scandal,DC Public School Teachers Contract.

Let's not even try to figure out how he works around his travel schedule, with all of the campaigning he does on city time. Concerned Citizen, you really are too funny!!
