    It was a women's only race.
    Wow, how far ahead of the "non-elite" runners was she? It must have been like a time trial for her.

          In minor defense of the ladies, it must have been god awful boring out there until some of the men caught up to them.

            I thought the times might be slow in part because of SF's famous hills, but the course bypassed those for the most part.

              I intend to weedle myself into the first tee time at my local golf tourney, beat the other three in my group and then declare myself the winner because I couldn't 'see' the performances that followed. One techno solution is to post a golfesque leader board in a few locations over the last miles which would post miles or meters per hours of top contenders. Otherwise do away with the elite crap and get back to start line basics.

                Dipsea

                What's the big deal? In the Dipsea the fastest time of the day hasn't won in over 20 years. Walk it off cry baby and run.

                  This is irrelevant, the rules allow it.

                    I wonder if there was prize money and if she was awarded equal money??

                    I agree that a woman running 2:55 should not think of herself as "elite". This is equivalent to a man running 2:35-2:40. I think very few people with those sort of credentials would ask to be in the elite division.

                    It is not as if she leaned at the tape an won by 3 seconds. It was 11 minutes, almost a 2 mile win. She beat them like a rented mule.

                      How about a DQ for running 13M too far?
