It rained on Simon Bor's parade Sunday, so Benson Mutisya Mbithi got to play drum major. Mbithi ran as if he wanted to get out of the weather--he did--in winning the Los Angeles Marathon over fellow Kenyan Mark Yatich and about 20,000 or so others who finished behind them Sunday in conditions most who have been around the event for all of its 15 years called the worst in race history.

One-and-a-half million paper cups. Fifty-five thousand gallons of water. And 300 tubes of petroleum jelly. Those supplies constitute a small sampling of what more than 23,000 runners, representing 80 countries and all 50 U.S. states are expected to go through Sunday for Los Angeles Marathon XVI. That's not to mention the 40,000 medals, 6,700 yards of tape or 22,500 feet of rope that officials and volunteers will be dealing with when the four-race event gets underway at 6 a.m.

For a decade, Belayneh Densimo was the standard. His 2 hours 6 minutes 50 seconds at Rotterdam in 1988 was the mark everyone who runs 26 miles, 385 yards shot for . . . and missed. Until Berlin. Until Amsterdam. Until Tokyo. Until Chicago. In the last 18 months, seven athletes in five races at those four venues have run faster than Densimo's 2:06:50, which had stood so long as the world record, and two of the three fastest times came in the same race last fall in Chicago.

She did it once, but she won't be doing it again. Those were Elana Paramonova's feelings after running--and winning--her second marathon in two weeks in the 16th Los Angeles Marathon on Sunday. Paramonova, a 38-year-old mother of one and born and raised in the Ural Mountains in Russia, had clocked a career best of 2 hours 32 minutes 55 seconds to win the Motorola Marathon in Austin, Texas, on Feb. 18.

Although Joanna Zeiger, the lone elite U.S. woman entered in Sunday's L.A. Marathon, downplays her chances of becoming the first American to win since 1994, she has surprised before. Entering the Sydney Olympics last September, Zeiger was ranked No. 38 in the world in the women's triathlon. She finished fourth. "I highly doubt I'm a favorite," Zeiger said Wednesday from San Diego during a break in training for the marathon. "But I'm really excited. It's supposed to be a great race.
