Drivel that cannot fit in a single panel comic.

There was a major screw-up with the chip timing system. Half the runners were missed at the start line. Based on my average pace from the last three checkpoints I estimated my time to be 5:42:53. That is a personal record. I wish I had more tangible proof.

The company that did the chip timing will change your chip time if you send your offset time (within reason - it has to be close to your pace during the second half of the race). Unfortunately, I do not know my offset time. I was not paying attention to the clock as I crossed the start line.

This marathon made news when a couple of confused deer decided to join the race.

Footage of the deer can be found at CNN.com and other news sites.
