Elementary teacher screws up, posts best time in marathon

An elementary teacher posted the best time in the Nike Women's Marathon in San Francisco but wasn't declared the winner. It was all her fault. Arien O'Connell, a fifth-grade teacher, failed to get into the "elite" group of runners that started 20 minutes before the rest of the ordinary runners. Nike's response: "At this point," Nike media relations manager Tanya Lopez said Monday, "we've declared our winner."

Like Nike says, Arien O'Connell should leave nothing to fate.
