Marathons

A veteran of five marathons and several triathlons, Buffalo News sportswriter Amy Moritz  is now training for her first ultramarathon. In order to reach this level of athletic achievement, she first had to stop doubting herself. Moritz recounts her journey in her first book, "I Thought You'd Be Faster: The Quest to Be An Athlete."

Controversy continues to swirl around the verdict that acquitted James Corasanti of the most serious charges lodged against him in the death of 18-year-old Alexandria Rice of Amherst.  The public at large believes Corasanti should have been held criminally responsible for striking Rice with his car last July and then leaving the scene. 

Bruce Andriatch is suburban editor of the Buffalo News.  On this week's Press Pass, Andriatch tells WBFO and AM 970's Mark Scott while people can disagree with the verdict, the jurors should not be subjected to the harsh criticism aimed at them.
