RUSH HOUR It was bumper-to-bumper traffic when the field for the U.S. Olympic Marathon Trials went to work on Sixth Avenue in New York City early last Saturday morning. The race was won in a record time of 2:09:02 by 25-year-old Ryan Hall (blue shirt, behind front-runner Edwardo Torres). Hall's triumph was mixed with tragedy, as fellow runner Ryan Shay collapsed on the course and died.
