Photo detail

Jamie Watts, of Arlington, has run the GW Parkway Classic three times. She started at 4 a.m. and thinks she did a little faster than her previous time of six and a half hours. Watts has done over 109 races. She has cerebral palsy and walks with canes. Watts was born prematurely in a small town in Missouri, where the medical team did not have the resources to help her: still, she says, “I wouldn’t trade my life for another: you either make the most of a handicap, or you don’t. I work for Bender Associates and help people with handicaps get jobs.”
