The chip didn't register!! How disappointing! I beat my goal of an hour, and because I didn't see many people that looked my age, I hung around for the awards. They called the first place in my age group; I didn't remember seeing her (it was a very small race - 137 runners). Second place - Me: Hey! didn't I pass her?, Third place - Me: I would have sworn I passed her too! I second guessed myself and thought well, maybe they passed me near the end, but I did not remember anyone passing me the last mile. I passed several in the last mile.
So....I get home, and a few hours later see the results posted online. I am nowhere to be found. I look at the folks in my age group. Only four there. First place was 50:09, second place was 56:42, third place was 1:01:57. My Garmin TIME WAS 56:02!
I placed second in my age group! But was no where to be found in the results. The only thing I can figure is, I had opened my jacket at the start, zipped it up after I crossed the mat at the start, then at some point in the race, pulled it off and tied it around my waist. As I was coming to the finish line I untied it and held the sides to open it. I may have had the bottom still zippered, so maybe it was on top of the timing chip.
Well, I am a bit competitive with myself, so I was disappointed that I didn't get my award. I wonder if that has ever happened to anyone else?
