Spy run

The Washington Times Weekly - - National -

CIA Deputy Di­rec­tor Stephen R. Kappes joked that ac­tors Sean Con­nery, Robert De Niro and An­gelina Jolie opted out of CIA’s 18th an­nual 5K run at the spy agency’s head­quar­ters in McLean, Va. be­cause of the re­cent in­clement weather, but the driv­ing rain did lit­tle to dampen the spir­its of hun­dreds of CIA em­ploy­ees who par­tic­i­pated in the race.

Mr. Kappes fired the start­ing pis- tol for the event, which in­volved two laps around the com­pound. And for those who don’t like to run, a 2.5-kilo­me­ter health walk was held si­mul­ta­ne­ously. Af­ter the race, the CIA com­peti­tors en­joyed a bar­be­cue fea­tur­ing pulled pork, veg­e­tar­ian wraps, cole slaw and potato salad.

CIA Di­rec­tor Michael V. Hay­den, who ran in the race last year (the first di­rec­tor to do so), was out of town on busi­ness. But Mr. Kappes told the en­trants that Mr. Hay­den was run­ning with them — at an undis­closed lo­ca­tion, of course.
