When last John Treacy ran through the streets of Los Angeles, he was happily re-establishing himself in an event he had taken up, with instant success, in 1984. The first time here for the Irishman was the L.A. Olympics, where Treacy ran his first marathon and won a silver medal, to the astonishment of Olympic observers. But Treacy entered the 1992 Los Angeles Marathon after having gone years without a satisfying result.

On the first Sunday of March every year, the streets around the Coliseum echo with the strains of the signature song of the L.A. Marathon--Randy Newman's, "I Love L.A." Played in a continuous blare at the start, the song remained for most of the 20,000 runners more a suggestion than declaration. For John Treacy of Ireland and Madina Biktagirova of Belarus--the male and female winners of Sunday's seventh race--the song became an ode to their new favorite town.

Police shot and killed a man who grabbed for an officer's gun Sunday just a few hundred yards from the finish line of the Los Angeles Marathon, only moments after the first of more than 19,000 runners completed the 26.2-mile race, authorities said. The gunfire, which marred what had been a picture-perfect day for the seventh annual competition, erupted at 11:15 a.m. in a crowded "family reunion area" at Exposition Park, where hundreds were waiting for friends and relatives competing in the race.

Sales fell 24% to $291 million. Excluding certain costs and an accounting change, TMP said it would have had a profit of 14 cents a share, matching estimates.
