Bronx Half Results

... are posted here. Congrats to the 5,000-plus that finished. Haven't had much of a chance to look them over or sift through the blogs, though some quick comments:

*Orest Babyak was the top Brooklyn male, finishing 3rd overall and top master. His AG performance of 86.05 is the top male from what I can tell in an initial glance...

*The top female AG was listed as Maggie Bodo, 61, of NY, at a stunning 99.26. Given that there's only one other listing, a 37:46 time for a 5K, can't imagine that will stand (Note to number swappers out there: If you're going to do it, don't mess up the age group results).

*Miriam Beyer, was the top Brooklyn female

*Will Abrams, a PPTC member, won the Male 50-54 category

I too call BS on Ms. Bodo's time, but I don't think it was due to number swapping. Check out the photos and video of Ms. Bodo (or whomever was running under her number). There are a couple of oddities. Her clock time is 1:42:high - not 1:29 as her chip indicated. Plus she's shuffling along and getting passed by the others finishing around her.

I think it's pretty clear that she didn't run 1:29, but it's probably because she cut the course (knowingly or otherwise) or some other explanation, rather than a speedy runner posing as her.

Whatever the reason, she's no longer on the results list.

Good to know. Nice catch.
