>> wrong turn was a blessing in disguise for a connecticut runner. halfway through, apparently she missed the turnoff and noticed she was the front runner in the women's category so she kept on going. she ended up winning at 3 hours 11 minutes . she also qualified for the baunl marathon. good for her.
