Shan: I'm curious though about the logistics of the scoring of a marathon. I mean typically when you see a marathon there are an assload of people there; who determines if you start at the front or the rear? And how do you accurately time anybody other than the front of the pack? Anyone who has run in a pack of any size knows that there's a massive rubber-band effect and it has to be several minutes at some of the larger marathons before the "last" person to start even crosses the starting line
dognose4: Oh, it's it's just a 1/2. I can run what with out a water stop on a hot day. It doesn't even look hot.
