What Would You Do?

This is very random. But here ya go.
Remember I ran the First Light 1/2 Marathon in January, right?
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!!
