      2:56:07. For a guy who had no interest in running this race about 2 months ago and scrambled to get his shit together. Unbelievable. He has so much more talent than he thinks. What a race.

            Wait what???? CK finished at 2:56:07.. chip error may be. I was worried he was slowing a lot. I hope he did it.

                    Great race Cal!  Congratulations.

                     

                    I'm feeling really worried about CK.  This is what happened previously but he was ready beyond belief for this.  I hope there's something wrong with his tracking

                      My same thoughts around that horror story he had a few years ago. I hope this isn't that.

                        I am wishing the same as Steve for chip error with CK. Hope he is OK!

                          I'm hoping the chip malfunctioned.

                          Everyone's gotta running blog; I'm the only one with a POOL-RUNNING blog.

                           

                          And...if you want a running Instagram where all the pictures are of cats, I've got you covered.

                              Me too; there was a minute or so of weirdness on the site.

                               

                              Congrats RP and Cal on the excellent races!
