RUNNING

January 17, 1995|By Michael Reeb | Michael Reeb,Sun Staff Writer

The Baltimore Road Runners Club will sponsor indoor track and field meets at Catonsville Community College on Feb. 4 and Feb. 18 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Events include a 2-mile relay, 300 meters, mile, 500 meters, six-lap relay, 2 miles, 800 meters and mile relay.

"What we're trying to do is provide some indoor running because of the weather," meet director Ed Harte said. "These are the dog days of running."

L For information, call meet director Harte at (410) 789-7560.

Lebow remembered

In the winter issue of Footnotes -- the Road Runners Club of America's newsletter -- runners and friends of Fred Lebow remembered the founder and director of the New York City Marathon who died last fall.

In one of the more engaging stories, New York Running News editor Raleigh Mayer had this to say:

"Fred was the king of the silver lining. He saw the opportunity in everything. During the New York transit strike, Fred saw it as an opportunity for people to put on their running shoes and get out on the streets. . . .

"The capstone example, however, is after he was diagnosed with cancer. For several years, he had been having trouble with his knee and had even had surgery on it. After his chemotherapy, it no longer bothered him, and he would comment that he didn't know if it had done any good for the cancer but at least it had cured his knee."

Briefly

Stacey Nicholson of Lutherville ran 2 hours, 47 minutes, 32 seconds and was 13th in Sunday's Houston-Tenneco Marathon.
