It's a typical weekday morning, and the Bain Center is buzzing with activity. An aerobics class is taking place in one room, and several people are playing pool in another. In the woodworking shop, Herschell Doss of Ellicott City is adding slender, curving legs to a side table that he is creating. Throughout this month, the center is celebrating its 25th anniversary with activities such as wine tasting, live music and a dance. But these events are not so different than the whirlwind of programs and events that the Bain Center offers on a regular basis.

Despite threatening skies, the Centennial Fun Run began its 29th season Tuesday with 140 participants, said organizer Arleen Dinneen. "It was great. We were worried that we might not be able to hold it because of the weather. But we did, and it was a wonderful crowd," Dinneen said. The one-mile run though the neighborhood across from Centennial High School begins and ends in front of Dinneen's house, on Colonial Drive. Dinneen said the summer tradition is a "Howard County Striders' event.

An unusual mix of athletes is warming up in front of Arleen Dinneen's split-level suburban Ellicott City home. Young children and their parents, teens, college students and older adults are stretching on Dinneen's lawn, in her driveway and in the middle of the street. The runners -- about 120 of them -- take their marks, eyes on the slim, gray-haired grandmother dressed in shorts, a T-shirt and running shoes. "Set! Go!" Dinneen yells as she starts the timer. And with that, the pack begins the mile-long "fun run" that begins and ends in front of Dinneen's home on Colonial Drive, a Tuesday evening affair that has grown into a weekly tradition in this neighborhood over 27 summers.

MEMO TO the committee that will choose members of that proposed Howard County Sports Hall of Fame: Just a note to give y'all an example of a problem you'll face, deciding who's made a lasting impact on sports in this county. Arlene Dinneen's name isn't likely to leap into everyone's mind as one of the greatest athletes in county history. She hasn't won an Olympic medal or been a pro or even that much of a standout in her sport, running, even though she can document having covered more than 20,000 miles during her 61 years.

Florence Bain Senior Center in west Columbia will reopen Wednesday, according to Howard County officials. Flooding from a burst sprinkler pipe Jan. 11 closed the center last week. Workers dried carpets and walls after the pipe broke in the ceiling of an exercise room, pouring out water to a depth of 4 inches. The exercise room where the pipe broke will remain closed for several weeks, until a new wood laminate floor can be installed, said Arleen Dinneen, director of the center. Machines have bored into walls to dry them, and rugs have been dried and treated to prevent mold.

First came the kids. Then the parents. Then the competitive runners. And what started out as a "fun run" for folks in Arleen Dinneen's neighborhood 22 years ago has turned into an exercise in community. Every week in the summer, 100 to 200 people converge on her Ellicott City house to run - or stroll - a mile in the hilly, tree-lined development. They come from all over the county and elsewhere, too. Some who participated as children now bring their kids. Others are third-generation fun-runners.

University of Kentucky tennis coach John Dinneen had this to say in 1990 about then-freshman Susan Klingenberg:"I see no limits to Susan's game. With a bit of seasoning and plenty of long hours on the court, Susan's dreams of playing professional tennis can become a reality. It's great to have her aboard."Two years later, the seasoning has come around nicely, and the long hours on the court have paid off for the junior from Hampstead; she just ended the season as the Wildcats' No. 1 singles player.

One of the nice things about Harborplace is that there's always something new. If you haven't been lately, take a little time to check out these shops and carts:At All Wound Up (Light Street Pavilion, second level) everything whirs, flies, scurries, whizzes, jiggles or bounces. This is where the action is -- literally. It's a wild hands-on store of interactive toys for kids of all ages. What are the summer's hottest sellers? Water toys, virtual pets, bubble guns. My favorite is the Star Saucer, which shoots small, soft foam rings that float disc-like for up to 20 feet.
