AA tradition is dying this year, when the Palos Verdes Marathon will be no more. This marathon is the second oldest in the United States and had been run for 45 straight years.
This year, a half-marathon and 5K run and walk set for May 19 will replace the 26.2-mile endurance test.
That will change the focus from an elite event for serious runners, including many attempting to post a qualifying time for the Boston Marathon - the nation's oldest - into a community-oriented fundraiser.
I will personally miss the excitement of the Marathon , as the marathon had finished at Palos Verdes High School for most of the years that it ran, and the finishers ran past my house with just 1 block left in the race.
