"When I was a young pro and naive and innocent, I used to go out there and shoot more course records than now as a seasoned pro with a lot of fear and damage in my system," he said Thursday after opening with a 61 to establish...

It also helps that pro football has a televised address on 21st and Primetime, while the pleasure of a marathon is simply to finish one, even in the dark. In canceling the road race,...
