Scottish marathon runner Liz McColgan didn't get a bug, the bug got her. The highly regarded distance runner was bitten by an insect Friday and her ankle swelled dramatically. McColgan insisted on running in Sunday's marathon but said she wanted to quit but thought better of it. "I was going to stop at 19 miles," she said. "But I thought by the time it would take for the transportation bus to get to me, I might as well carry on to the stadium."

Liz McColgan of Ireland ran the fastest women's 5,000-meter road race on record Sunday, winning the sixth Carlsbad 5,000 in 5 minutes 11 seconds. That broke the the world best of 15:19.3, set at Carlsbad two years ago by Lynn Williams. "I just eased up when I saw the clock," said McColgan, 26, who won $5,000 for the victory, $2,000 for the world record, and another $1,000 as a repeat winner--she won here in 1988.

It was a touching sight to see a gentle, patient Liz McColgan cradle her five-month old baby girl in her arms after running the fastest 5,000-meter road race on record. Runner-up Elly van Hulst could only wish McColgan had shown a trace of that compassion toward her earlier. McColgan, 26, ran away with the sixth Carlsbad 5,000 Sunday. Her 5:11 finish shattered the world best of 15:19.3, set here two years ago by Lynn Williams.

Salvador Garcia got none of the pre-race attention yet won the New York City Marathon. Liz McColgan got most of the women's hype--primarily her own--and fulfilled her promise by winning the women's division in record time. Garcia, a sergeant in the Mexican army who wasn't invited to any of the press conferences for elite runners, led a 1-2 Mexican finish Sunday, as the favorites continually dropped out of contention.

For the second time in three years, a Carlsbad 5,000-meter road race produced two world bests Sunday. That was nothing new for Fallbrook's Steve Scott, winner of the men's division. He set the previous record in the inaugural race in 1986. Liz McColgan, the women's winner from Dundee, Scotland, is no stranger to road racing bests, either. She holds the world 10-kilometer mark as well.
