9 Seconds

The Boston Marathon was this morning and last week I mentioned that Kara Goucher and Ryan Hall were the two favorite American runners.  Both ended up finishing a VERY respectable 3rd place.  What is even more amazing is the amount of time separating 1st – 3rd.

For the men, only 58 seconds separated Hall from the winner.

For the women, Goucher was only 9 Seconds away from winning.  Considering her race time was 2:32:25 that is only 0.098% away!  So close…
