Official results are in.
To have a certified course they have to measure the very shortest distance that a runner can travel around turns, etc. But it's very unlikely that any runner would be able to run the shortest route. That's why your distance showed .1 longer. I was about .15ish longer too, and I was really trying to run the shortest. I went to go look it up because I was wondering after mine too. I ran a 10k once that showed up on Garmin as shorter than 6.2, and I've forever been convinced that the course wasn't measured right.
Great job, buddy! It's funny you mention this because I had the same issue on my iPod with my 5k today. Odd.
Agreed with what Meghan said - unless you stick to the tangents just right, you'll probably come out a little more than 13.1 miles. Just a little extra something to be proud of :)
My Garmin rang in at 26.5 and I purposely tried not to weave too much...it's impossible!
