NEW YORK -- Some run in memory of a lost loved one. Others are motivated by a milestone birthday. Theres a story behind every one of the 50,000-plus runners in Sundays New York City Marathon; here are a few of them.---Rudy will be running.Actor Sean Astin will take part in his first New York City Marathon, although hes run a dozen marathons in other cities.He said the race will be poignant because New York was the birthplace of his mother, actress Patty Duke, who died in March.Im sure Ill experience a whole range of emotions from bittersweet to sad to nostalgic to excited to hopeful, Astin said. And thats all before I get to the starting line.The 45-year-old Astin is known for film roles such as Samwise Gamgee in The Lord of the Rings trilogy and the title character in Rudy.Playing the sturdy Samwise, Frodo Baggins right-hand hobbit, proved challenging for an actor who was dedicated to fitness.Astin said the character is derided as a stupid fat hobbit by the shadowy Gollum. Every time I would start to exercise the director would pull out the book and point to that sentence, he said.---Foodies know Elizabeth Falkner from TV shows including Top Chef Masters, The Next Iron Chef, Redemption and Chopped All Stars.I love food competition. Thats my other favorite sport, said Falkner, who played soccer until age 38 and then got serious about running but has not run a marathon before.I turned 50 this year and I thought this is a perfect birthday present for me to give myself, this goal of running my first marathon, she said.Falkner is running to raise funds for Team for Kids, the youth services program of the New York Road Runners club, the marathon organizers.She said shes always tried to promote healthy living even when she ran her San Francisco bakery Citizen Cake. Im not the kind of chef whos telling people to always have more bacon and butter in everything, she said.---Four 27-year-old siblings will be the first quadruplets ever to participate in the New York City Marathon.Elite wheelchair athlete Brian Siemann, who suffered a spinal cord injury a few days after birth, has been in more than 25 marathons, but this will be his first with able-bodied sisters Amanda Siemann, Maria Siemann and Jessica Rowe.Its exciting on two fronts, Brian Seimann said. One, I think, to be the first quadruplets to run the New York City Marathon ever is really cool. But then to be doing this together for the first time is really special, that well remember the rest of our lives.The siblings were born in Brooklyn but have scattered to different states. Only one sister, Jessica Rowe, is a marathon novice.Well be checking in with her to make sure that shes OK and shes alive and she hasnt totally given up on this, Maria Siemann said.---Gordon Felt, 53, is running with other family members from United Airlines Flight 93, which crashed in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, on Sept. 11, 2001, as the passengers tried to wrest control of the plane from four hijackers.Felts brother, computer engineer Edward Felt, called 911 from the doomed plane just minutes before it crashed.Gordon Felt said he and the other family members are running to raise funds for the Flight 93 National Memorial. As family members, our training mantra has been they never gave up and neither will we, he said.Felt, who owns a summer camp for learning-challenged children in upstate Remsen, New York, said he was a middle-distance runner in high school and college but has never run a marathon before. Ive done my training and Im ready to go, he said.---Actor Theo Rossi, known for Sons of Anarchy on FX and Luke Cage on Netflix, said he chose to make New York his first marathon because its the capital of the world.The 41-year-old said its special that the race starts on Staten Island, his often-maligned native borough.As a kid growing up on Staten Island, that really was our only identity, that the marathon starts on Staten Island, he said.Rossi has participated in other endurance events including the Hood to Coast, a 199-mile relay in Oregon. His teammates during the race from Mount Hood to the Pacific coast last August included comedian Kevin Hart. [url=http://www.cheapshoesnike.com/]Cheap Authentic Nike Shoes Wholesale[/url] . The 18th player to shoot 60 on the tour, Jamieson settled for par on the final hole when his 15-foot birdie chip grazed the edge of the hole and stayed out. After opening with rounds of 66 and 73 to make the cut by a stroke, he had 11 birdies in the bogey-free round. [url=http://www.cheapshoesnike.com/]Nike Shoes Wholesale China[/url] . Burris threw two TD passes, including a key 15-yard fourth-quarter strike to Bakari Grant that effectively countered a Toronto comeback bid and led Hamilton to a 33-19 victory. [url=http://www.cheapshoesnike.com/]http://www.cheapshoesnike.com/[/url] . The Nashville Predators were glad their captain was still on their side. Weber had a goal and two assists, and Roman Josi scored the shootout winner to lift the Predators to a 4-3 win over the Flyers on Thursday night. [url=http://www.cheapshoesnike.com/]Cheap Nike Shoes Online[/url] . Argentina winger Ezequiel Lavezzi and France midfielder Blaise Matuidi scored, with star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic setting up both despite having a poor game by his high standards. Forward Eduardo gave Ajaccio the lead in the sixth minute after being set up by right winger Benjamin Andre, and the Corsican side looked comfortable in the first half, with the lively Johan Cavalli causing problems with his probing runs from midfield. [url=http://www.cheapshoesnike.com/]Cheap Nike Shoes Free Shipping Wholesale[/url] . On Saturday night, the normally free throw-challenged centre did just that. Howard scored 18 of his 25 points in the fourth quarter, including 13 of 19 free throws in a 2 1/2-minute stretch, and the Houston Rockets beat the Denver Nuggets 122-111. Hawthorn forward Jarryd Roughead wont be taking the field in September but he remains a vital part of the AFL clubs push for a fourth consecutive premiership.Roughead, who had a melanoma cut out of his lip last year, revealed in May that routine scans had uncovered a recurrence.The 29-year-old continues year-long treatment for cancer but is spending time at the club when possible.Skipper Luke Hodge suggested Roughead has helped forward James Sicily and many young players at the club during his time on the sidelines and would continue to do so in September.Hes been trying to pass on his advice, Hodge said.Its the kind of person he is, he brings out the best in you. Whether its on the field or off it.I saw some vision throughout the week of him talking to Burto (Ryan Burton), hes helped out (James) Sicily and Gunners (Jack Gunston).His advice annd his maturity to pass on to the younger guys is going to be valuable.ddddddddddddHawks coach Alastair Clarkson was proud of the way his side had tried to fill the void left by 2013 Coleman medallist Roughead.Weve sadly missed his presence in our front half but weve been able to cope reasonably well in pretty trying circumstances, Clarkson said.Roughy is a quasi-assistant coach.Its just been a little bit difficult (for Roughead to spend time at the club) because hes had treatment and rehab that hes needed to go through.The Hawks face Geelong in a qualifying final next Friday at the MCG.Clarkson expected ruckman Ben McEvoy (back) and defender Ben Stratton (pectoral) would both return from injuries against the Cats.
