Had a false positive pregnancy call when she fainted at the finish line

Gretchen

Chicago

3:29:08

PR … but not sure if it counts as a PR.  I mean, it should have been sub 3:25

Heather

Baton Rouge

 

Too much Bourbon in the big easy made her forget her time … 3:5x or something like that.

Ivan

Older, but can still crank out sub-4

Kevin M

Weather was perfect.  Running conditions were perfect.  Ran 14 minutes slower than last year.  That’s how we roll at DSG.

4:55

Too slow, wife dropped him at the bridge

Tuan

Baton Rouge
