By the time Graham Peck was halfway up Heartbreak Hill during the Boston Marathon, he knew he'd be all right. The Fells Point resident had gone into Marathon Monday with a goal of finishing the 26.2-mile race in 2 hours and 28 minutes. Peck, running his first Boston Marathon, had made it up and over several other hills in Newton, Mass., and knew this hill, the course's most infamous obstacle, would be his most significant remaining challenge. "I think, at that point, with about six miles to go, is when I felt, 'I'm not going to screw up too much here,'" he said Tuesday.

The Boston Marathon resonates deep within my memory. I don't know when, exactly, it got there. My older brother ran distances, gliding around the streets of Atlanta in the days when that meant regular harassment from motorists, long before anyone had heard of the word "jogger. " Few of them knew we had a marathon in Atlanta - it was 10 laps around a golf course - but most had heard about the one in Boston. My brother and I watched delayed coverage on "Wide World of Sports," with Jim McKay telling us of the challenges of Heartbreak Hill.

Anyone who has competed in a road race knows that extra police and security are as much a part of the event as water stops and cheering spectators. But the last time John Gilligan ran the Boston Marathon in 2012 - a year before two bombs exploded near the finish line and changed the racing landscape - he didn't take notice of law enforcement. "I don't remember any security. You didn't think about it," said Gilligan, a 46-year-old Towson resident. "It didn't occur to anybody. You just hopped on the buses … You [could]

BOSTON -- It is rare, but potentially deadly. It is exotic, yet spread through one of the most common summertime irritants: the mosquito. And now, it is here. The West Nile virus, which can cause fatal encephalitis, was found in two dead crows here last week, making the area the latest outpost in its unsettling spread. While it has yet to claim human victims in the Boston area, experts say that more summer-like conditions could bring an increase in mosquitoes -- spreading the deadly virus.

Lonza Biopharmaceuticals plans to shutter its Baltimore operations next year, as it consolidates its U.S. microbial biopharmaceutical business in Hopkinton, Mass. The 206 workers at the plant at 5901 E. Lombard St. will have the option of transferring to other Lonza facilities, including the Lonza Bioscience headquarters in Walkersville, Frederick County. That facility employs 475. The closure of the Baltimore plant, which manufactures batches of product for other biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies under contract, comes shortly after the Basel, Switzerland-based parent company Lonza Group AG purchased two divisions - bioproducts and biopharma - from East Rutherford, N.J.-based Cambrex Corp.
