FILE - In this Jan. 7, 2013 file photo, Astrel Clovis, a 42-year-old marathon runner, trains in the early morning in Petionville, a suburb of Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Six days a week, Clovis sets off at daybreak and has been running the hills and streets of Port-au-Prince for the past 10 years. He decided to take the sport seriously after he entered a race in downtown Port-au-Prince on a whim - and won. Clovis' story inspired the J/P Haitian Relief Organization to sponsor five Haitian runners so they can compete in the New York City Marathon in November 2013. Sean Penn's relief organization will accept the top three men and two women finishers in a rare half-marathon that will wind through the Haitian capital of Port-au-Prince on Sunday, June 1, 2013. “This is my dream _ to participate in a marathon, out in the world,” Clovis said. “I'm very excited to represented Haiti in the New York marathon, if I qualify.” (AP Photo/Dieu Nalio Chery, File)
