Mark down New York City Marathon victor Liz McColgan as the woman to beat come the World Cross Country Championship in Boston in March. The GB native won a big 5-K x-c in England last week, beating back Susan Sirma (Kenya) and Russian Olga Bondarenko. Speaking of which, the World x-c is in trouble in Beantown, the event director just quitting . . . The winning distance in a 24-hour run staged in California was 134 3/4 miles.
