The skies were still dark as the Twin Otter flown by the Golden Knights took off, bound for the starting line of the Army 10-miler, in Washington, DC on Sunday. Team leader, SFC JD Berentis spotted the aircraft for the streamer drop as the sun rose over the Pentagon. Once the streamers landed, the pilots shifted the run in and the Team prepared to exit in one of the most history rich places in the country. SSG Noah Watts, the narrator, was the first to exit. SSG Watts had his tennis shoes waiting for him on the ground when he landed, because he was planning on representing the Golden Knights, not only on the jump, but also by joining the 30,000 other runners for the 10 mile run. He finished in 1:16:53, only slightly slower than his previous time the year prior. After the race, the Team presented a litho to the Army 10-miler, and met many of the runners, who came from all over the country. Sign up for the Army 10-Miler early next year; the field closed in just 29 hours this year! <www.armytenmiler.com>
