Foot and Ankle Specialists of the Mid-Atlantic, LLC (“FASMA”) doctors and staff came out early on Sunday morning to show their support for runners on September 13, 2015, at the annual Parks Half Marathon in Bethesda, Maryland.

The Parks Half Marathon is an event created by the Montgomery County Road Runners Club (MCRRC) to “showcase one of the most extensive metropolitan parks systems in the country while providing runners with a competitive, top-notch race (http://www.parkshalfmarathon.com).” The course ran through preserved parkland along the Rock Creek Stream Valley and ended in downtown Bethesda.

FASMA podiatrist Dr. Lee Firestone, a member of the MCRRC, ran the half marathon as a pacer and volunteered in the Medical Tent afterwards. Drs. Caitlin Madden (Wheaton, Shady Grove, and Rockville Divisions), Erin Robles (Chevy Chase and DC-K Street Divisions), and Danielle Venegonia(Rockville Division) stood at the FASMA tent, handing out information and giving advice to runners about various foot problems and treatments.
