The 2007 Under Armour Baltimore Running Festival might have Lake Montebello return to the marathon course, but it won't have the defending champion in the women's half-marathon. Lyubov Denisova, who won the 2006 half-marathon by more than two minutes, has been banned by the International Association of Athletics Federations for two years. A posting on the IAAF Web site lists Denisova testing positive for two banned substances, Prostanozol and testosterone, in a random out-of-competition test conducted March 20. Lee Corrigan, the organizer of the Baltimore Running Festival, said yesterday that Denisova tested negative for banned substances last October here.

THE PROBLEM: Lake Montebello lacks restroom facilities. THE BACK STORY: Bruce Paris feels the urgency of the problem. He is one of hundreds of people who run, walk or bike on the path around Lake Montebello on warm summer nights. But where do they go to the bathroom? "Where have you ever been with five or 600 people and no bathroom?" asked Paris, 60. The Hamilton resident, who has been jogging or walking at the lake for about 20 years, praised repairs to the path, which reopened two years ago for exercisers.

Not so long ago, a dilapidated house stood on the corner of Jenifer Avenue and 30th Street in Baltimore's Montebello community, a magnet for drug users and dealers. But now the house has been torn down, and a mural is planned that will fill the space "with color and joy," said Natalya Brusilovsky, the healthy neighborhoods coordinator for the Coldstream-Homestead-Montebello Community Corp., a nonprofit community association. The mural is the brainchild of Gabrielle Elkaim, a 29-year-old Mount Vernon resident who works for the federal government and is taking a seminar through a program called Landmark Education that requires her to "create a project that inspires," she said.

If conventional golf is a good walk spoiled, what came to Lake Montebello on Saturday was more like an afternoon thrown away. Under cloudy skies and the threat of a downpour that never came, several dozen enthusiasts and community activists gathered to welcome the sport known as disc golf to the Northeast Baltimore park. It was the official kickoff of a 24-hole course that will help round out the recreational opportunities at the city park — already popular for its hiking and biking and the exercise equipment scattered across its grounds.

By the time the grandmother and granddaughter were on their third loop, they had burned several hundred calories and rehashed recent family clashes over borrowed shoes, damaged blouses and an uncle's new lady friend. "We talk about everything," said Mary Bailey, 60, who lives in Idlewylde near the county line but considers Lake Montebello - which will be dredged as part of a long-term project that started Monday - part of her extended neighborhood.
