First let me assure you the delayed race start has nothing to do with the timing. The official TimeMacines are started with the gun. Seeing the first place female at 8th overall with a 5:28 pace turns our eyebrows into question marks too. And Carol, herself, says she felt more like a 5:40 pace. Unfortunately she was not running her watch. We do not have a select time for Carol. We do have a select time for the runners who placed 7th and 9th and a primary time - meaning someone crossed the finish line - inbetween. Carol Raney's tear tag is on the spindle in that spot. In the absence of specific evidence to the contrary, we have to accept what the data tells us. We usually have someone taking the numbers of the top 5 men and women by hand as an extra precaution in addition to the backup TimeMachine. Without enough volunteers to staff essential positions, this precaution could not be exercised. As for your 4th place friend thinking she won, sorry, we do have times for the other womern ahead of her.
