I just drank a bottle of water and walked around the office a bit to stretch my legs.  Mostly I did it because it's Friday, I'm beat, and I'm trying to give my staff the impression that my give-a-$hit meter isn't pegged.

Can you beat a dead horse back to life?

Last place LV Marathon

5902 9:10:24 9:09:16  5044 DMITRY UCHITEL       LAS VEGAS NV         351 M2529

Just shy of a 21 min. per mile pace.

Very impressive, he ran completed a marathon!!!!

From a volunteers standpoint, I won't volunteer for a race that has this liberal of a cutoff ever again.

For your average Marathon I say 6 hrs is fine.  You can look at my blog entry from yesterday if you want to see my comments on some of the "LVM runners".

I think I counted like 20 people over 8 hours for that race. You are right if they are busy talking on there cells then its not very into the spirit of it. Kinda like if you are not going to give it effort then why do you do it.

I volinteered at a race where about 5 people for sure I knew missed the 2:30 cut off. these are 5 people at mile 11 I think at near 2:30. IT was a cold and raining day and it sucks waiting there for 10 - 15 minutes for these people who slowly show up. now the last 4 people were nice they stopped drank, gave us there cups and move on. The 5th to last ran about the farest we could see her which was pretty far away and she dropped the cup after we had the course all cleaned up. She ignored the garbage box we had set out. If you holding people up you need to give them respect.

LV when I did it was weird. I was struggling and had a bad day and it took me 6:31:00 to finish the race. Frankly they gave 2 different time limites but honestly they did not follow either of them.
