Up, that is.
I got my official finisher’s certificate for the April More Marathon only to discover that I’ve mysteriously been moved from 10th to 9th place.
Since I’m obsessive, I dug out a printout of the initial race results from my recycle bin and discovered that the original 9th place finisher, Ikuko Yabunami, has been removed from the list of finishers. I don’t know what happened there. Jonathan had told me right after the race that he thought he’d seen her being paced by three guys, so maybe she got disqualified for that (although I doubt it). Or maybe she was one of the people who was misdirected and didn’t hit all the mats.
In any event, 9th is always nicer than 10th.
