In the 1990’s Sports Focus Magazine was the leading paper publication focusing on health and fitness activities in the Baltimore & Washington, DC area. It paid attention and helped promote the running community through its detailed calendar and partnerships with events like the Marine Corps Marathon and the Army 10-Miler. Triathlon, bicycling, in-line skating and aerobic activities were all reported on and celebrated.
This site will spend more time looking at youth and amateur sports and possibly got back to its roots of health and fitness along the way. It will also look at some interesting topics outside of the lines (sorry ESPN), on topics affecting the Mid-Atlantic region.
No mention of Sports Focus Magazine is complete without mentioning the original paper’s Publisher, Editor and driving force: Manny Rosenberg. Manny ran track at the University of Maryland and had a passion for lifestyle sports. He put that passion into words and pictures and everyone benefited. Maybe word will get to him and he will approve, or not, or a new web iteration borrowing his paper’s name. One thing for sure, Manny will let you know his opinion.
Let’s see where it ends up.
