Despite those disincentives, 52 men, 11 women and a bluetick hound dog named Blueberry showed up for a 9 o'clock race to welcome the new year with a six-mile run along the hilly, pine-lined roads that ring the reservoir. "A lot of nonrunners don't quite understand it," said Rick Bingham, president of the Baltimore Road Runners Club and organizer of its annual Father Time Frolic on New Year's Day.

In the Baltimore Road Runners Club five-mile foot race held yesterday in Druid Hill Park, victory went not to the swiftest but rather to the runner with the most self-awareness. A prize of a Timex sports watch goes to the runner who most accurately predicts his or her finishing time. This year, Jamie Kaizer and Tyler Bray tied for first place in the men's category, finishing within a second of their predicted times. Both won watches. In the women's category, Jeanette Novak and Robin Goodwin finished with the most accurate times, garnering watches for both of them.

John Scherer (Glenelg and Michigan) got ninth in the TAC cross country title run in New York; his time of 31:02 was 40 seconds behind winner Bob Kempainen's 30:22. The latter's effort ended a long streak of victories by Pat Porter and automatically qualifies him for the U.S. World Championship squad.On the women's side, Lynn Jennings, the defending world champ, assured herself a return to the big meet in March in Antwerp, Belgium, by running 19:07 -- 26 seconds better than anyone else. A couple of area runners, Gina Procaccio and Cassie O'Neill, finished fourth and seventh, respectively, in the 8-K.* That was an OK start the North Central Marathon, conducted by the Baltimore Road Runners, got on its maiden voyage the other day. A hundred runners showing up to hack out a marathon at about the time most are easing off for a couple of months is a tribute to their resolve.
