Steve Spence knew he was done for when he took the trash out — barefoot — to the curb of his Moorpark home Sunday night. He looked down, and on his foot was a furry bat with black wings. It was exactly like the hundreds that migrate to his neighborhood, and especially his house, every spring and leave every August. He shook the bat off. Then Spence, 54, looked closer, and on his foot was a red bite mark. "I immediately thought 'I'm screwed,'" said Spence, a case manager for a nonprofit that serves the homeless and mentally ill. The bat was rabid and had infected Spence.

Now they are complaining about the good conditions. Part of the race plan for American marathoner Steve Spence was to capitalize on what he was sure would be horrible race conditions. Because of a morning rainstorm, the temperature for Sunday's race wasn't as high as for the women's, which was held more than a week ago. Spence said it threw him off. "The pollution wasn't as bad as I'd hoped it would be," he said. "And it wasn't as hot. I think we got the best day.

Spence, who is ranked second among U.S. road racers, finished in a course-record time of 13 minutes 58.9 seconds and picked up $3,000 prize money.

Nine months out of the year, Steve Spence lives and trains among the rolling, farm-studded hills of southern Pennsylvania. While running, Spence often shares the road with the Amish, who occasionally ride alongside him in their buggies, playfully challenging Spence to a race. During the summers, Spence relocates to Boulder, Colo., where the Rocky Mountains and the clear skies provide inspiration.

Sometimes, the success of a running event depends at least partly on the size of the party afterward. Sunday's Fiesta 5000 serves as a kickoff for San Clemente's annual Fiesta, a street festival with games, entertainment, food booths and children's rides (see Around & About, page 15). Organizers of the daylong event say the Fiesta draws more than 50,000 visitors. The 2,300 or so that are expected to take part in the 5K run make it one of the more popular running events in the county.

With the same grace and discipline that he displays in front of the camera, Jean-Claude Van Damme makes a socko directorial debut with "The Quest," a martial arts adventure odyssey that's epic in scale and high in style. In co-writing (with Frank Dux) the film's original story, Van Damme and screenwriters Steven Klein and Paul Mones have created engaging starring roles for Van Damme and his co-star, Roger Moore, in his best part since he retired from playing James Bond.
