Dave Berardi, one of Maryland's premier road runners who runs out of state as much as he does in state, has enjoyed his share of success in area races.A two-time winner of the Howard County Striders' Metric Marathon, Berardi won the Annapolis Ten-Mile Run in 1989. This summer, he beat friend and training partner Jim Hage in Arbutus' Firecracker 10K.But his success in those races pales in comparison with his history with the 8-year-old Down Syndrome Airport Run 10K, which he won for the fifth consecutive time nine days ago.Turns out, there is prime motivation for his record in that race.

Sunday's Sinai Fitness Center 5-mile road race drew a better-than-average field that included Dave Berardi, as well as Bachman Valley Half-Marathon winner James Pryde, Rotunda 10K Romp victor Brad Uhlfelder and the Naval Academy's Tim Tenne.But thanks to some speed work that Berardi has been doing of late with 1989 Marine Corps Marathon champion Jim Hage, Berardi was 40 seconds faster than his closest competitor at Owings Mills."He [Hage] pounds a lot of his miles," Berardi, 30, said shortly after he crossed the finish line at the Sinai Fitness Center in 24 minutes, 52 seconds.

Joe Wasserman, the director of Sunday's Metric Marathon in Howard County, is hard pressed to give a single reason for the growth of his run, but he won't argue with success. The size of the field grew by 193 percent in 1989. Sunday's field was an increase of 156 starters over 1989's 527.Dave Berardi, who won Sunday's 16.3-mile run in 1 hour, 26 RTC minutes, 25 seconds, didn't have to be concerned with any of those numbers, though, as he pulled away from the field at 3 1/2 miles en route to a 1 1/2 -minute victory over second-place finisher Jack Peach.

I ran against her when she ran for Villanova," former University of Maryland runner Rosalind Taylor said shortly after she had crossed the finish line first in 16 minutes, 21 seconds -- 27 seconds ahead of Porcaccio."I needed to run a fast 5K," Taylor, 23, said. "I didn't know the field would be this deep."
