    BANNED from the LLR (Ladies' Locker Room) forum at age 64 for not playing nicely with others. Had to find other playgrounds.

          In my book 3:59:55 rounds to 3:60 Smile.    I can see why you want to keep the 'seconds'!!


          This is why I truncated my times.  I wanted to keep my PR 2:59:52 below three hours.

                  Trivia question: The 3:11:00 was in 1994, and I was a 29-yr-old male. Did I miss qualifying for Boston by 1 minute, or by 1 second? (I hear there may have been a 59-second "grace period" or some such ...)
