Cumberland's Constantino set to tackle Boston Marathon, break elusive three-hour mark

April 12, 2013

CUMBERLAND – For runners like Dave Constantino, the unicorn on the logo of the Boston Marathon has been fitting.
For nearly a decade at the hallowed 26.2-mile race, the 43-year-old Cumberland native has tried to track down his own personal unicorn – that is, break the 3-hour mark – but each time, he’s fallen short.
And he has come oh-so-close. Two years ago, his time was 3:04:46. The previous year, he ran a 3:07:40. And in 2006, his second trip to Boston, he turned in a 3:09:27.

Rainouts placing a damper on PawSox' pregame routine

PAWTUCKET – From a win-loss perspective, the Pawtucket Red Sox can’t ask for much more. Winners of six of seven games, it seems that Mother Nature, not the opposition, is the team’s toughest foe in the season’s early stages.
Friday’s postponement of Rochester-Pawtucket marks the second time in three days that the pitter-patter of raindrops has come into play for Gary DiSarcina’s ball club. This past Wednesday saw Pawtucket play two innings at Lehigh Valley before the game was halted in the second inning due to rain.
