The female winner this year was a woman named Shewarge Amara who won the women's race in a record-setting 1:08:21.
That is amazing on its own; however, more amazing is that she did it in borrowed clothes.
I was sitting at the start, listening to the announcer make last-minute announcements, when he said, "We have a slightly unusual request... If any of you have a spare set of running clothes for a slender woman, average height, please approach the podium."
It turns out that Amare's driver had locked the car - with her running clothes and shoes still inside. So Amare borrowed a pair of shoes and a singlet and proceeded to run the race. (I swear the announcer asked for shorts and a singlet, but the reports I'm finding only say a singlet and shoes.)
Next question: a local 5m race this weekend is giving away medals at the end, and Prince Harry and Heather Mills
Speaking of medals...
