MMT Splits Now Available

Actually, we had all the splits up when the last runner finished MMT on May 13.  But there were errors and missing data.  We have fixed the errors we could find and extrapolated the few missing times.  Also, you can now see a sorted list of runners' times over each stretch of the course.  (Now we know why Sean blew everyone away on the run to the finish. He was fastest over that stretch by six minutes.)  These data are particularly valuable if work is boring!  MMT 2012 Splits
