Ashis Roy, 81, adds a half marathon to his bag of 115

Washington, June 17 (IANS) India's marathon man Ashis Roy added another half marathon to his bag of 115 full marathons as he completed his 11th 13-mile run in the San Francisco marathon 2013.

Washington, June 17 — India's marathon man Ashis Roy added another half marathon to his bag of 115 full marathons as he completed his 11th 13-mile run in the San Francisco marathon 2013.

Clocking a time of 3 hours and 37 minutes, the 81-year-old cardiologist, the oldest participant in the marathon, clipped five minutes from his last run in Alexandria, Virginia, three weeks back.

Roy, a resident of Delhi's Chittaranjan Park, who ran his 115th marathon in Mumbai in January, has switched over to running half marathons since a spinal injury in November 2011 that required major surgery to fix six nails in his last two vertebrae.

A retired wing commander of the Indian Air Force, Roy took to running marathons at the age of 52 and by 75 he had completed 82 races. He went on to complete his 100th marathon in January 2010.

Roy plans to participate in the Philadelphia marathon with his 42-year old daughter in September.

5 Keys for a Successful Playoff Chase for the San Francisco 49ers

Oct 31 2014 8:28pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The San Francisco 49ers come off the bye in the thick of the NFC playoff race but will need to make some improvements in order to ensure they seal a fourth straight postseason berth.  At 4-3 the Niners have performed well for most of the campaign. However, a number of failings in key areas have kept Jim Harbaugh's club two games behind the division rival Arizona Cardinals, who at 6-1 sit as the class of the conference. Yet with its roster now getting healthy and the returns of sta ...

SAN FRANCISCO — Pablo Sandoval walked up the stairs as he brought up the rear of yet another Giants victory parade and immediately got stopped by home run king Barry Bonds. "Don’t walk by me," Bonds ordered, pulling his fellow slugger into an embrace. Sandoval insists he wants to play the rest of his career for the San Francisco Giants, and for moments just like this.
