CUMBERLAND â€“ For runners like Dave Constantino, the unicorn on the logo of the Boston Marathon has been fitting.
For nearly a decade at the hallowed 26.2-mile race, the 43-year-old Cumberland native has tried to track down his own personal unicorn â€“ that is, break the 3-hour mark â€“ but each time, heâ€™s fallen short.
And he has come oh-so-close. Two years ago, his time was 3:04:46. The previous year, he ran a 3:07:40. And in 2006, his second trip to Boston, he turned in a 3:09:27.
PAWTUCKET â€“ From a win-loss perspective, the Pawtucket Red Sox canâ€™t ask for much more. Winners of six of seven games, it seems that Mother Nature, not the opposition, is the teamâ€™s toughest foe in the seasonâ€™s early stages.
Fridayâ€™s postponement of Rochester-Pawtucket marks the second time in three days that the pitter-patter of raindrops has come into play for Gary DiSarcinaâ€™s ball club. This past Wednesday saw Pawtucket play two innings at Lehigh Valley before the game was halted in the second inning due to rain.
