THey showed the leader...he has stopped several times during their stupid technical glitches...they said he was 15 minutes way...unless the field is extremely poor...early on was 2:21 pace...

The womens' marathon has had several close finishes...2 seconds, they were tied at 3:09...I guess they were able to call it because of the computer chip and one of them had started sooner but thats kinda wild because in the old days you might start a step or two behind and all that mattered was the finish...they crossed the line together...another wild thing is the girl that won did this in 2012 also...not sure if she won for a second or two then but what are the odds!!!!

Cat Lisle won 3:09.17 to 3:09.18 by Danielle Hodge...Lisle won by .01 in 2010 also not 1 or 2 seconds...I am pretty sure there is one or 2 other races of less than 2 seconds...I guess the women pace themselves on what is a slow course...
