Well, last week I received an email that L’Arche tried to send me my award but my address was wrong. So I sent them the correct address assuming that it was just a certificate or something like that. When I looked at my times after the race, I had not placed.
So, I checked my mail today and this was in it.
A letter congratulating me on my award…
A sweet handmade award by a L’Arche member (front, back)…
That says a 3rd place female 30-34 finisher….
Say What???? I didn’t, and still don’t, think this is right.
The top 1o females are below (with ages):
***HALF MARATHON FEMALE 30 - 39 AGE GROUP TOP TIMES***
1 ELIZABETH PORTER 32 NEW ORLEANS LA 1:32:52
2 ANDRA BRUCE 38 MOBILE AL 1:38:50
3 LIZ SEURYNCK 33 MOBILE AL 1:43:42
4 JESSIANNA OSBORNE 30 APO AE 1:44:42
5 TAMMY FORD 38 GRAND BAY AL 1:45:54
6 SHARON MAHAN 33 SILVERHILL AL 1:47:08
7 LEDER STOKES 36 MOBILE AL 1:47:09
8 NICOLE WAITE 32 MOBILE AL 1:47:10
9 CARSON BAKER 35 FAIRHOPE AL 1:47:17 10 JULIE CASCADEN 38 FAIRHOPE AL 1:48:27
And then the top 30-34 females:
FEMALE AGE GROUP: 30 – 34
1 80 SHARON MAHAN SILVERHILL AL 1:47:08 8:11
2 82 NICOLE WAITE MOBILE AL 1:47:10 8:11
3 99 ELIZABETH KALIFEH ATLANTA LA 1:50:18 8:26
(obviously they couldn’t read my handwriting at all-first my address and now that I am from Atlanta, LA not GA. I never said my penmanship was pretty.)
Again. Say What???? Am I confused or do you see what I see? The top 10 doesn’t = the top 3 in the 30-34 age group, right? What should I do? Email them and tell them it doesn’t add up? Not worry about it?
Advice please. And thank you.
Happy Friday too!!
