Despite two run-ins with Big Apple pavement, Mohamed "Mo" Farah, got up each time, dusted himself off, and told the world, " I'm OK, this is no big deal", and everything is still on schedule for his marathon debut coming up in London.

All this in a New York minute - or two of them.

By Ray Krolewicz

I wrote this on the 95th anniversary of the birth of Ted Corbitt, Jan. 31, 2014. I cannot rightfully call it his birthday because he died in December 2007. I celebrate his memory regardless of what it is called. I share his story with my students as I do every year. It is difficult to believe he has been gone for more than six years. I remember meeting Ted at a 100 miler. I remember running events with him while he walked when he was older, but still vigorous. I remember seeing and talking to him at events through the years.
