Keith Brown Jr. has heard the word "too" too often. Between the ages of 12 and 14, Brown, who said he was "what you would call chubby back then," was told he was too heavy to be a sprinter. On a number of occasions, Brown, who is 5 feet 9 , has heard that he is too short to be a successful hurdler. And when he battled Osgood-Schlatter Syndrome - a knee condition affecting many adolescents in which tendons fail to keep pace with the lengthening bone and create stress on the bone -for several years, even Brown thought he was in too much pain to contemplate a track and field career.

Keith and Sandra Brown always answer even a cursory "How are you?" with "I am blessed." In Carroll County, the couple said, blessings are pouring on them. The Browns, of Houma, La., and seven of their eight children fled back-to-back hurricanes in the Gulf Coast and drove nearly 1,500 miles in a rickety pickup truck to the Taneytown home of their eldest son, Keith Brown Jr. After two days on the road, they arrived cold and hungry in the middle of the night and crowded into their son's home, along with his family, which includes infant twins.
