During the school’s monthly lunchtime track runs, it has begun adding Network for a Healthy California fruit and vegetable distributions.

About a month ago, Julie Smith started a running club at College Park Elementary School in Costa Mesa. As a third-grade teacher, she knew about the nationwide reports citing high levels of childhood obesity and diabetes, and she figured that a little weekly exercise might stave off the doctor. As it turned out, Smith didn't have to push students very much. By the time the program entered its third week last week, nearly all of the second- and third-graders at College Park had run at least once — and Smith, who stood at the starting line and handed out a ticket for each completed lap, could barely deal fast enough.

Doug Ingram knew he had to find some sort of exercise about 16 years ago just before his son, Dimitri, was born. Ingram, a Newport Coast resident, took a bit of an extreme route, but discovered running could become a way of life for him. “I realized that during my wife’s pregnancy I had developed more pregnancy-related weight than I think she had,” said Ingram, co-chairman of the OC Marathon. “I realized that it was time to get active again.” Ingram, also the executive vice president and chief administrative officer of Allergan, joined a marathon training group and never looked back.

I am currently training to run in the Orange County Marathon on Jan. 8 while pushing my daughter, Paige, in an adaptive stroller. Paige is the younger of my two daughters and has cerebral palsy. I have two goals for the marathon: One is to raise money and awareness for United Cerebral Palsy of Orange County, one of the children's charities that will benefit from the OC Marathon. I have been active on the Board of Directors since 2001, and I am very fortunate to have the resources to provide therapy and other opportunities for my daughter -- but not everyone is so fortunate.

From a distance, he is perfectly conditioned, moving forward at a steady pace, with toned calves and runner's body. Close up, one detail about Salvador Avila strikes an observer like a sledge hammer: The man is an 80-year-old grandfather. The patriarch of the successful Avila's El Ranchito restaurants is no stranger to unbelievable feats.

Charlotte Dobbs The last four days have been extraordinary. Having an idea is one thing. Seeing it evolve into a three-dimensional, living experience is quite another. I'm humbled by the experience, knowing how much effort has gone into the first OC Marathon by so many people. As I stood watching the inaugural marathon and half-marathon begin with physically challenged athletes, I was reminded of all we take for granted in life -- seeing the first flickers of morning light as the sun stretches into the day, hearing the sweet sounds of early birds greeting the day as we hold a pillow over our ears only wanting five more minutes of sleep, walking into the shower to not only wake up but to regroup for a new day. Walking.

Joseph Boo COSTA MESA - Since when is a cozy ballpark a little too cozy? When you're the Costa Mesa National Little League Majors (11-12) All-Star team and you gave up three home runs to Costa Mesa National's Brendan Hoffman, Skylar Cozad and Jamie Tinnion at Costa Mesa High's cozy Minor Field. Behind those three blasts, the Costa Mesa Americans won Wednesday's Mayor's Cup opener, 7-2. It has the chance to be the third Costa Mesa American representative in four years to win the Mayor's Cup today at TeWinkle School, starting at 5:30 p.m .

Chris Yemma Alex Sytnyk was about 3 years old when his mother told him, with tears gushing down her face, to run as fast as he could. He did, and is most likely alive today because of that. The year was 1939 and Sytnyk, his mother and scores of other people were jammed into a warehouse in Zhitomir, Ukraine. World War II had just started, Adolf Hitler had begun the process of killing millions of Jews and the Ukraine was part of the Soviet Union under Joseph Stalin's rule.

In a Pacific Coast League game featuring first-place Beckman against fourth-place Corona del Mar it appeared it would be a tight one … through the first three innings. But then came chaos in the fourth inning. Well, it was chaos for CdM. Yet it was a bonafide, two-out rally for the Patriots, who scored seven runs and went on to beat the Sea Kings, 11-2, Friday at CdM. It left the Sea Kings (6-16, 4-7 in league) needing to win their final four regular-season games for a playoff berth and it left the Patriots (20-2, 10-1)

IRVINE - To avoid the heat, the Sage Hill School baseball team waited in the dugout for the home plate umpire to arrive to Friday's game. He ran late because of traffic, which postponed the start time 23 minutes. "Umpire just got off the freeway," Crean Lutheran Coach Jake Haney said to Sage Hill Coach Dominic Campeau, who expected his team to play at 2:45 p.m. The scheduled time was 30 minutes before most contests Sage Hill plays. By the time the ump made it to the field at Cypress Community Park, it neared Sage Hill's regular start time to games.

Mariners Elementary students greeted UC Irvine basketball players Wednesday afternoon with about as much fanfare as one might expect if a teenage pop sensation visited the Newport Beach campus. The students clamored around the college athletes for their chance at an autograph and, if they were lucky, a selfie with one of the basketball players. Six men and women from UCI's basketball programs visited the fourth-, fifth- and sixth-grade classes at the Newport Beach elementary school to talk about sports and the importance of earning a degree.

"You're not going to like it, but here's what you should do," said my husband. "Don't hike Monday, don't run the rest of the week, don't race. " I'd just returned from my Saturday morning run to tell him, "Catherine kicked me off the trail when I said the words 'shin splints.'" Earlier that morning, runners met in Corona del Mar, exchanged hellos and took off. I lagged behind, way behind. My friend Catherine looked back, stopped, waited. As she joined my snail-like gait, I confessed that the reason for my 12-minute-mile pace was shin splints.

For residents near Dover Drive, the ongoing construction on their street has a silver lining.

An Orange County Sanitation District project for sewer rehabilitation, the Dover Drive Trunk project began last summer and is expected to be complete in October or November, instead of July.

HUNTINGTON BEACH - Eleven days had passed since Newport Harbor High last played a Sunset League baseball game. The Sailors resumed league play on Wednesday and they continued where they left off, in a rut. A lack of offense in league has plagued Newport Harbor, which lost at Edison, 5-1. In the last 21 innings in league, one run is all the Sailors have produced. They avoided a third straight shutout in league by scoring in the final inning. Edison starter Noah Kronfly went into the seventh having thrown only 60 pitches, one led to a Sailors hit. Newport Harbor recorded its second and third hits in the seventh, before Kronfly finished things off. He improved to 5-1 and moved the Chargers (15-5, 6-2 in league)

Regular runners and students from across the city will line up at Jim Scott Stadium at Estancia High School on April 26 for the seventh annual Costa Mesa Community Run to raise money for schools. Two-thirds of the proceeds will go to the Costa Mesa High School Foundation and Estancia and TeWinkle Schools Foundation, with the rest of the funds being split among the city's other schools, said race coordinator Karen Barloon. Phil D'Agostino, who was recently promoted to director of student services at Newport-Mesa Unified, and Barloon, who is the testing coordinator at Estancia High, came up with the idea for the run in 2008.

Junior midfielder Shelby Brown called the end of the Corona del Mar High girls' soccer season "crazy," and nobody who saw the games would argue. Two tight wins on the road at the end of league helped the Sea Kings win their fourth straight outright league title. In the first, CdM had to survive a last-minute, penalty-kick attempt against Beckman. In the second, the Sea Kings had to rally from a two-goal deficit at Northwood in the final 20 minutes. CdM then earned two shootout wins in its first two games of the CIF Southern Section Division 1 playoffs, against Fountain Valley and Upland.
