Cherokee cross-country runner Marc Pelerin completed the 3.1-mile course at Van Cortlandt Park in the Bronx, N.Y., in 15 minutes, 40 seconds yesterday to finish sixth in the Foot Locker Northeast Regional Championships. The finish enabled the senior to qualify for the national meet Dec. 8 in Orlando, Fla. Last year, Pelerin missed qualifying by a half-second. Runners from 11 states and Washington, D.C., competed yesterday. The top eight finishers advanced to nationals, which will feature just 32 runners.

Stacy Robinson had the nerve to think she actually had a chance to beat Amy Rudolph of Kane (McKean County) in the 1,000-yard race at Saturday's state indoor-track championship meet. "I always think I can win, no matter what," said the Phoenixville junior, who started running track for the first time just four months ago. "I've always been competitive. " In Rudolph, Robinson faced an opponent of national stature. The Kane runner won the state cross-country championship in the fall and had the nation's best time this winter in the 1,000 - 2 minutes, 37.4 seconds - heading into Saturday's meet.

Gloucester Catholic coach Browning Ross was preparing his team for a dual meet against Bishop Eustace on Tuesday afternoon when his star runner, Ted Callinan, brought him bad news. "Before the meet," Ross said, "he said his hip was killing him. Then, right before the race, he came to me and said he was going to go out and run hard. " The confused Ross watched as Callinan showed no ill effects from a sore hip and ran the New Brooklyn Park course in Sicklerville in 15 minutes, 15 seconds - 35 seconds faster than he had run the same course a week earlier and 90 seconds faster than his closest pursuer.

No matter how strong she feels, Katie Van Horn will not go to the starting line without a small brace on her right knee anytime soon. "My mom's like, 'I could see you all the way over there. Wear it every week,' " said Van Horn, a Triton sophomore. "Now I'll wear it so people can pick me out. " Spotting her on the course may not be that difficult. If her first major cross-country meet is any indication, Van Horn, who says she usually does not wear the brace when she trains, will be one of the girls at the front.

Karen Hauck of Bishop Shanahan took advantage of the ups and downs of the cross-country course at the Briarwood Classic at Belmont Plateau (Fairmount Park) to win the big-school race in 20 minutes, 4 seconds Saturday. "I just kind of went out and tried to stay with the lead pack," Hauck said. At the mile mark, Council Rock's Kristin Williams and North Penn's Jenae Strader took the lead going up the very long and steep Parachute Hill. But Hauck caught them on the way down and pulled away on another long downhill section of the race.

While others tense up at the start of a race, Cheltenham's Kate Dempsey takes it easy. A standout in track for the last two years, the senior is also a backup guard for the Panthers basketball team. She is running indoor track again this winter but concedes that it is more for fun than glory. "I'm just sort of running indoors to build a foundation for the outdoor season," she said. "This way, it's a little bit more relaxed and more fun. " But taking it easy for Dempsey is better than full speed ahead for most runners.

Lansdale Catholic cross-country coach Steve Probert has a problem with his star senior, Mark desGarennes. The kid runs too much. "After practice sometimes, he'll go home and run another six miles with a flashlight," Probert said. "I don't like it at all. He's out there in the dark, and there are things called holes and cars and creatures hanging out in the weeds, especially in Quakertown. " During the summer, desGarennes trained especially hard for his senior year, and he developed a genuine enthusiasm for practicing and for long-distance runs.

Karl Wicks received a call from his doctor at 5:30 on a Friday afternoon to meet him. When he arrived, he was sent right into the office. That, Wicks said, should have been his first clue. It was serious. Wicks' doctor sat him down and explained the situation. His white blood cell count was way too high, and Stage 4 leukemia was diagnosed. At the time, in January 2007, he didn't know much about the disease, but he started asking questions. "From there, it was, 'What do I need to do next?

IT'S DOUBTFUL that the pint of Fireball cinnamon whiskey was included in the goodie bags of healthy fruit, granola, water, and yogurt distributed to the soggy, ebullient runners at the end of the Blue Cross Broad Street Run. But it was just what the doctor ordered, passed among the sodden, the brave, and the teary-eyed, punchy with cold, fatigue, and memories at the American Cancer Society's DetermiNation tent. If there's any truism about Sunday's Broad Street Run, it's that nearly every runner had a story.

New York restored some narrative order to the presidential race. Hillary Clinton, adoptive native daughter, won the Democratic primary Tuesday, and Manhattan developer Donald Trump, denizen of the city's tabloids for decades, cruised to victory in the Republican contest. They will be perceived as the front-runners again heading into the Acela Primary next week, when Pennsylvania and four other states along the Eastern Seaboard's main passenger rail line hold votes. Clinton and Trump were leading in the delegate counts even before New York state's ballots were counted, but they ran into turbulence over the last couple of weeks that, at the very least, raised doubts about their potential strengths as party standard-bearers.

In a congressional race that is drawing national attention, a seemingly existential question has turned up the heat: Just when does a political campaign begin? In the case of Republican front-runner Brian Fitzpatrick, his opponents say his first steps into the contest may have been missteps. Less than two months after suddenly entering the race and instantly becoming the favorite, Fitzpatrick is facing criticism and questions about a report that he began his campaign before resigning from his FBI post.

They may be the front-runners in the race for president, but that does not necessarily make them popular in Pennsylvania. Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump hold leads in their respective parties among likely voters in the April 26 primary, according to a Franklin and Marshall College Poll being released Thursday. But both suffer when independents and opposition party members are added to the mix. More than half of those polled viewed each unfavorably. The poll of 985 voters, conducted from Feb. 13 to Sunday, found: Clinton, the former secretary of state, leads U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont by 21 points, 48 percent to 27 percent, among Democratic voters.
