Raymond Derek, 61, of Hollywood, a recovering cancer patient, plans to compete in Sunday's Los Angeles Marathon using a modified walker. Derek has competed in the last two races, completing 13 miles in 1991 and 11 last year before he was forced off the course by street sweepers. "If I make 10 miles this year, I'll be lucky," Derek said. "I'm the only one with a walker in the race. I put wheels on it so I can shuffle along. I start with the wheelchairs, but they pass me by pretty quickly."
