I just looked up the results of 2007 race. Looks like they fixed the course last year.
shows winning times:
1:08 and 1:26 are very doable by the winners, if not slow for Rebecca.
Ryan- it was more apparent in 2003 that it was short, not because of course difficulty (I've run that fast a Paavo), but because i remember the conditions as BRUTALLY sticky. I was 3 miles out on a cool down and worried I wouldn't be able to walk the 3 miles back.
I remember Laura saying something about stopping at mile 12 for a short prayer. You see, I brushed your greatness years ago!!! ;D
