A woman who meant to enter a half marathon in Ontario, ended up taking a wrong turn, running the full marathon and winning the race.
Meredith Fitzmaurice intended to run 13 miles (a half marathon) at the Run for Heroes in Amherstburg, Ontario on Sunday. She wanted to do it as a test run as she wanted to achieve a Boston Marathon qualifying time at a race in Detroit next month.
However, as she was running on Sunday, Fitzmaurice missed a turn for the half-marathon route and ended up running a full marathon. Also, she won.
Her time, clearly, qualified her for the Boston Marathon.
