The Fast & The Fierce 5K Sponsored by Aegis Project Controls was by all accounts a success. The Friends of the National Zoo could not have asked for a more perfect day in terms of weather. Kids showed up. Dogs showed up. Adults showed up because hey, someone had to bring all of those kids and dogs!
The costumes were on theme and the runners were in good spirits. Some folks took things a bit more seriously than others but there is certainly nothing wrong with a little competition, especially if said competition goes a long way in terms of raising money for animal conservation projects. We can’t wait to see what next year will bring!
