STORYLINE:

HAITIAN RUNNER ASTREL CLOVIS SEES PORT-AU-PRINCE CHANGING -- THREE YEARS AFTER THE COUNTRY'S DEVASTATING EARTHQUAKE...

(open nat)

HE SAYS THE HOMES USED TO BE CLOSE TOGETHER BUT WITH RECONSTRUCTION, THERE IS NOW MORE SPACE. IF THERE IS HE DOESN'T THINK THEY'LL LOSE A LOT OF PEOPLE LIKE BEFORE.

THREE-HUNDRED-SIXTEEN THOUSAND PEOPLE DIED IN THE 2010 EARTHQUAKE--WHICH DESTROYED MORE THAN 100,000 HOMES...TODAY--THERE ARE STILL FEW SIDEWALKS--LET ALONE BIKE LANES...SO IT'S HARD NOT TO NOTICE CLOVIS RUNNING THROUGH TRAFFIC.

HE PASSES A NEW PUB SELLING $8 PINTS OF GUINNESS AND RUBBLE WHERE HOTELS USED TO BE...MORE THAN $5 BILLION IN FOREIGN AID HAS BEEN SPENT..CLOVIS--LIKE MANY HAITIANS--THOUGHT RECONSTRUCTION WOULD BE FURTHER ALONG BY NOW.

STILL RUNNING LONG DISTANCES HAS HELPED THE 42-YEAR-OLD MECHANIC RECLAIM A MEASURE OF HOPE... HIS WINS OF 5 AND 10 K RACES BRING IN A SMALL SUM OF MONEY... HE'S WELL OFF COMPARED TO HIS NEIGHBORS...70 PERCENT OF THE POPULATION LIVES ON LESS THAN $2 A DAY.

POTHOLES AND SMOG WILL NOT STOP HIM...AFTER RUNNING A 2-HOUR-AND-42-MINUTE MARATHON IN NEIGHBORING DOMINICAN REPUBLIC- CLOVIS HOPES FOR A MARATHON IN HAITI...SO HE CAN WIN AT HOME.
