Joe Wasserman, the director of Sunday's Metric Marathon in Howard County, is hard pressed to give a single reason for the growth of his run, but he won't argue with success. The size of the field grew by 193 percent in 1989. Sunday's field was an increase of 156 starters over 1989's 527.Dave Berardi, who won Sunday's 16.3-mile run in 1 hour, 26 RTC minutes, 25 seconds, didn't have to be concerned with any of those numbers, though, as he pulled away from the field at 3 1/2 miles en route to a 1 1/2 -minute victory over second-place finisher Jack Peach.

Tim Beaty has memories of the first Columbia Metric Marathon ingrained in his brain. In 1977, Beaty had been into running a mere eight weeks, and the inaugural Metric was his first long event - 16-plus miles, starting in Columbia, winding through Ellicott City, and back. Early this morning, Columbian Beaty and 300 or more runners take part again in what has become a Howard County athletic tradition in the fall; today's race is the Metric Marathon's 25th anniversary. What began as the then-neophyte Howard County Striders' big race, sponsored initially by the old Stromberg Publications weekly newspaper chain based in Ellicott City, has become the county's oldest continuously held running event.

MENTION AMATEUR sports, and most folks picture a ball field, a gym, tennis courts, a golf course or maybe a runner or cyclist climbing a hill. Clarksville's Judi Carbary, who had known that more challenging imagery is possible, recently added fear of flying off a mountainside to what she envisions. Carbary is a duathlete, a qualifier for the U.S. national team in several world age-group championships for that little-known blend of running and cycling. She and a lot of other duathetes will never forget this year's world event in mountainous Albis, Switzerland, at the end of last month.

A veteran of 50 marathons, Joe Wasserman also has enjoyed success as a race director. Under his stewardship, the number of runners participating in the Howard County Striders' Metric Marathon grew by 300 percent.But the Bagel Run is the race that's closest to Wasserman's stomach . . . er, heart. He is its organizer, overseer and cheerleader.Every Saturday morning at 7, he and between 30 and 150 runners take off from the Village of Wilde Lake in Columbia for informal runs of between 4 and 16 miles.

As director of the Howard County Striders' Metric Marathon in 1989 and 1990, Joe Wasserman racked up some impressive numbers, but as a marathoner, he has compiled a total equally as admirable.Competing in the Delta Dental of Rhode Island Marathon Sunday in Newport, R.I., Wasserman completed his 50th marathon, finishing in 3 hours, 15 minutes."It wasn't the greatest race," Wasserman said. "I think I let the emotion overcome me."The Rhode Island milestone came 13 years after Wasserman completed his first, the New York City Marathon, in 3:27.

Rose Malloy never has taken sitting out sitting down.But that's just what the masters runner extraordinaire has had to do since foot surgery two weeks ago, which came after two injuries.First, it was a stress fracture of a knee last August.Shortly afterward, it was a neuroma -- a pinching of nerve tissue -- in a foot.Then, her operation for twisted toes."I have grandmother's toes," says Malloy, whose humor was not lost with the opportunity to run.
