If Dave Cooley had been in charge of Sunday's Chicago Marathon, he would have checked the weather forecast and probably called off the race. "I'm surprised they even ran it," said Cooley, director of the Under Armour Baltimore Marathon. About 150 runners were hospitalized because of the heat and humidity during the Chicago race. One man died of a heart ailment apparently unrelated to the heat. The race was stopped after 3 1/2 hours, with temperatures nearing 90 degrees. Organizers of Saturday's Baltimore Marathon said the safety of the runners always comes first.

Terps hand No. 3 Penn State first loss of 2014 The Maryland men's soccer team (5-5-2, 2-1-1 Big Ten Conference) scored a season-high four goals Sunday in a 4-0 shutout of visiting No. 3 Penn State(10-1-1, 4-1-0). Terps junior midfielder Mael Corboz had the first two goals, and senior forward Alex Shinsky and junior midfielder Tsubasa Endoh each added one to give the Nittany Lions their first loss this year. Penn State's Andrew Wolverton had surrendered two goals total this season until the Terps scored four on him, the most Maryland has had in a game since last October.

Fall is prime time for marathons. Some runners make a dash to the airport just for the chance to cross the finish line in another city. Yesterday was the Baltimore Running Festival. Today is the Chicago Marathon. And more are to come. A colleague of mine, Baltimore Sun copy editor Helen Jones, is a regular marathoner, and last spring, she ran her second Boston Marathon. This fall, she's headed to Maine. I asked her to give us some tips on traveling to a marathon. Jones says that, as with any travel, planning is key. Here are a few of her tips: * Make your hotel reservation far in advance.

Tatyana McFadden surged to the lead of the New York City Marathon, and mile after mile, waited for a rival to challenge her. As has been the case all year, however, no one could catch the Clarksville resident. McFadden won the women's wheelchair race in dominant fashion Sunday, completing her unprecedented quest to win four major marathons in a calendar year. “I've had an incredible year, especially with the track season and with the marathon season,” McFadden said after winning the race by nearly four minutes over Japan's Wakako Tsuchida.

Sitting in the doctor's office in August, elated to learn she was pregnant for the first time, Amanda Weeks had a question. Could she still compete in the half-marathon at the Baltimore Running Festival? "I've raced all 10 years (of the event)," said Weeks, 33, of Ellicott City. "I want to keep the tradition going. " Told she could run, Weeks relaxed. "Running is my stress reliever," she said. "To take it away, especially now, would be tough. " Weeks will be nearly five months pregnant when she answers the gun Saturday for the 13.1-mile race through the streets of Baltimore.

Clarksville resident Tatyana McFadden won the women's wheelchair division of the Boston Marathon on Monday, hours before the race was marred by deadly explosions near the finish line. Though McFadden added to her resume as one of the elite Paralympic athletes in the world, her achievement was rapidly overshadowed by scenes of blood and mayhem. She tweeted that she was unharmed, about an hour after the initial reports of the explosions. "I am okay my family and teammates are okay," she wrote.

The Chicago Marathon was run a couple of weeks ago. The Marine Corps and New York City runs went last Sunday. This weekend, it's on to nationals in Columbus, Ohio, and the lead guy can gain a spot on next year's World Championships team. It's quite obvious all these marathons being jammed in together isn't helping anyone, and the state of American distance running is already a mess.For instance, Ed Eyestone ran fifth in Chicago (2:10:59), which, if he could have done the same thing in the Big Apple, would have put him well ahead of the field.

World-class track athlete Tatyana McFadden is not a flashy person. Soft-spoken with a thin face, dark brown eyes and a deceptively muscular frame, she is not the type to speak of her accomplishments without some prompting. But when she does talk about her accolades, she lets people know that success hasn't come easy. “I've worked hard for it,” says the Clarksville resident, who is paraplegic. Just shy of her 23rd birthday, McFadden has an impressive résumé. A graduate of Atholton High School, she holds U.S. records in the 100-meter, 200-meter, 400-meter, 800-meter and 1,500-meter races.

Robert Vigorito, founder and race director of the Columbia Triathlon Association, went straight to the top when choosing a spokesperson for his new race, the Iron Girl Columbia Half Marathon and Coed 5K, scheduled for April 29. Vigorito asked Joan Benoit Samuelson, a rock star in the world of racing -- breaker of world records, winner of marathons, and the first woman to win an Olympic marathon. Samuelson, now 54, is an ardent advocate for lifelong fitness, and, believe it or not, she still runs marathons.

Some may have been surprised to see Steve Spence, top American and 12th-place overall finisher in the Barcelona Olympic Marathon, cross the finish line in the 16th annual Bon-Ton 5-Mile Race Sunday in York, Pa.But, as Spence says, "I have a pretty good world-class range at about five distances."His winning time of 23 minutes, 29 seconds, although 31 seconds off his personal record for the distance, supported his contention.It was only two seconds off Jeff Canada's course record of last year and came on a less-than-ideal day for Spence, who had won the Market Street Mile in York two weeks ago in 4:05.
