There are various ways to measure the margin and I've gone with the three below. Margin - time between me and second place. Margin/Mile - time between me and 2nd place divided by the distance run. % ahead - my time divided by the second place time.
Smallest margin was .1 at the CMS 2m track series where I held off Bob Hodge.
Biggest margin was 30:56 at the Chicago Lakefront 50km, it was a tough day with 65-74 tems with 20-40 mph winds. I passed through the marathon in 2:30:04 and ran the last 8km in 27:32 (which I'd love to run now!).
|2.00||9:10.1||CMS Series||O track||0:00:00.1||00:00.050||0:09:10.2|
|31.07||2:57:36||Chicago Lakefront 50k||Road||0:30:56.0||00:59.7||3:28:32.0|
The smallest margin/mile was at the Boyston (now Stu's) 30km. It was the NE championship and Dan Dillon finished .3 behind me with Ed Sheehan another 3 tics back. We did not sit and kick, it was a very fast run from start to finish with no one able to break away until the last 100m.
The largest margin/mile was at Stark mountain, which was also the slowest "mile" I've ever run. It climbed straight up Stark mountain to the summit.

The smallest % ahead was at Boyston where Dillon finished .01% behind.
The largest % ahead was at the Dare Laconia 10k. I ran alone from the start and won by nearly a mile (5:17 ahead). Second place was 17.72% back.
