Beauty is in the eye of the beholder 😛
Here’s Dave, who ran 62:43 for 13th place, http://www.selfcare4you.com/cudahy2005pictures/web3/image029.htm
and Jerry, who ran 69:40 for 45th
Nice job guys, looking good! Congrats to both of you…

Peter – Dave’s running like a Legend…I ran like a “has been”. 🙄
Regardless, the Cudahy event was very well run and was an honest 10M course. (My GPS actually said 10.19 miles for what it’s worth)

I’ll take accurate over honest any day, when it comes to course measurements.

Of course, they use more accurate measurement devices than GPS (none of which I have seen ever guaranteed accuracy within less than 5% tolerance) and measure the shortest route possible when measuring courses if they do it right. That means you should expect to run more than 10 miles for a “10 mile” race and a reading within 1.9% of the stated difference essentially should tell us it’s as accurate as can be determined with the equipment and method used.
BTW Jerry: I’m not going to see that GPS at Al’s Run, am I? If I do, we’re going to have a little talk after the race. 😉

Not really. I’m sure it’s an all-in-one MP3 player, camera, cell phone and camel back too.
