This year he made it. ByJen A. Miller April 6, 2019 Welcome to the Running newsletter! Every Saturday morning, we email runners with news, advice and some motivation to help you get up and running. Sign up here to get it in your inbox. In 2017, I interviewed a few people who had technically qualified for the Boston Marathon but didn’t make it into the race. That’s because as demand for spots surged, Boston switched to rolling admissions, allowing the runners who beat the qualifying time for their age and gender by the most time to sign up first, and then moving down from there. That made getting into the marathon a moving target, which was … [Read more...] about Making It Into the Boston Marathon, Finally

ByWilliam Shannon Nov. 1, 2018 Ryan Stevens sat on the edge of a concrete balustrade in Central Park after finishing three laps around the reservoir. She and her fellow runners from Odyssey House, a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center, joked about a grueling 19-mile run around New York that they had finished the week before, as well as other pressing details, like where to go for dinner.

The image is miraculous: Passengers standing on the wings of a US Airways jetliner as it floats down the Hudson River. Pilot Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger and air traffic controller Pat Harten are forever linked by the amazing water landing that saved all 155 passengers and crew after a double-bird strike damaged both engines on Jan. 15, 2009. Approaching the 10th anniversary of the "Miracle on the Hudson," Sullenberger and Harten will meet at the finish line of the New York City Marathon. Sullenberger will put the finisher's medal around Harten's neck in Central Park on Nov. 4. "We think the world of Patrick, we're going to be very honored and excited to be there to cheer him on," said Sullenberger, who will attend with wife Lorrie. "We worked together seamlessly in one of the most dire situations anyone can imagine to try to save every single life."

Adam Graham Detroit News Film Critic Published 7:12 PM EDT Oct 18, 2018 It's the thrill ride horror fans have been waiting decades for and had every reason to believe they'd never receive. But director David Gordon Green has come together with co-writers Danny McBride and Jeff Fradley and cooked up one hell of an October surprise. Fresh, frightening and even funny — with a ferocious Jamie Lee Curtis performance to boot — "Halloween" straight up rocks. Along with his cohorts, Green — whose wildly varied career includes acclaimed indies ("George Washington"), studio comedies ("Pineapple Express") and based-on-a-true-story dramas (the Boston Marathon bombing survival tale "Stronger") — went back to John Carpenter's 1978 original to see what worked then, and apply what works today. It's that first movie's breathless air of suspense, Carpenter's eerie, propulsive score and the expressionless, blank … [Read more...] about Movie review: ‘Halloween’ a killer holiday treat
