  Running in Saturday's Foot Locker National Cross Country Championship in San Diego was an eye-opening experience for Hannah Oneda. It wasn't just that the Winters Mill senior was competing in her first national-level event. Oneda actually had to get used to chasing down the lead pack rather than separating herself from it. The freshly minted All-Metro Runner of the Year -- who won the Class 2A state title in record time last month -- finished 33rd out of 40 at the Foot Locker meet, completing the 5K course in 18 minutes, 21 seconds.

What do you think of my shares of Finish Line Inc.? Will the company's recent acquisition help or hinder it? - F.M., via the Internet Success doesn't always breed success. The giant footwear retailer was successful recently in outmaneuvering rival Foot Locker Inc. to strike a deal to purchase Genesco Inc. for $1.5 billion. This deal, slated to close in the fall, would make its product mix more diversified and upscale, something Foot Locker also was trying to accomplish. Finish Line operates more than 800 Finish Line, Man Alive and Paiva stores.

BERLIN -- It's a Sunday afternoon, and the Potsdamer Platz shopping arcade looks like any American shopping mall on a busy weekend. It's thronged with parents pushing baby strollers, retirees eating ice cream cones and teenagers sneaking kisses. But there is one major difference. The mall has plenty of stores to draw shoppers - Foot Locker, H&M, Eddie Bauer, a discount supermarket and more. But today, absolutely no one is going inside. The reason: The stores are closed. By law, they have to be. Any American merchant would be writhing in agony at the sight of hordes of patrons who are not allowed to buy. But in Germany, this abnormal spectacle is entirely normal.

LET ME tell you about the day I didn't strangle my youngest son. Thought about it, mind you, but didn't do it. There are several reasons. In the first place, I'm rather fond of the kid. In the second place, strangling people is against the law. And in the third place, I don't think my hands would fit around his neck. At 16, he's 2 inches taller than I am and outweighs me by a good 20 pounds. I know what you're thinking: "Why, Pitts, of course you didn't strangle your own child. You'd never do such a thing."

LAST WEEK, Nike Inc. warned that its earnings would fall below forecasts this year and next, sending the stock of the Oregon-based athletic shoemaker reeling. The company, which derives 61 percent of its revenue from athletic shoes, blamed the shrinkage of retail space devoted to athletic shoes. Indeed, in the past several weeks alone, two of the nation's largest athletic shoe chains, Venator Group Inc., owner of the Foot Locker and Lady Foot Locker chains, and Just For Feet Inc., have closed what could amount to hundreds of stores.
