More than 21,000 competitors participated in the 16th Los Angeles Marathon on Sunday, a world-class distance race trailed by a 26-mile parade of sweating, cramping humanity, most as interested in a good time as how fast they moved. On a day of strong winds and the threat of a rainstorm, Saul Mendoza, a 34-year-old Mexican, won a record fifth consecutive title in the men's wheelchair competition. "I'm a little bit tired, and very happy," Mendoza said, minutes after crossing the finish line.
