Honolulu Marathon Results 2010

Honolulu Marathon Results 2010 - Nicholas Chelimo of Kenya was first across the finish line this year at the 2010 Honolulu Marathon on the island of Oahu. After 20 miles of running the pack he slowly began to distance himself from the other runners. As Chelimo surged the other runners, Kenyans, dropped one by one. He would finish the course in 2:15:18.

27 year-old Chelimo was all alone after the 22 mile mark with Richard Limo also of Kenya, being his biggest competition and closest competitor. Limo came in with a time of 2:17:18 while Solomon Bushendich was third with a time of 2:19:54, and Gibert Kirwa was fourth with a time of 2:20:58.

Jimmy Muindi came in fifth with a time of 2:22:34. Muindi is a seven time winner of the Honolulu Marathon with his last win coming in 2007 in a time that would have still put him 3rd overall this year.

Marty Muchow of Mililani was the first local finisher in a time of 2:49:15.

For the women, it was a late entry that was almost disqualified that ended up winning the race, which was also her first marathon ever. 22 year old Belainesh Gebre won the event in 2:32:13 beating defending champion Svetlana Zakharova by almost a minute.

Gebre was leading almost the entire race and ran alongside her boyfriend for the whole race. A protest was filed after the race when Zakharova insisted that Gebre’s boyfriend was passing her water and pacing her as her coach giving her illegal assistance.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.

100-calorie Packs Diet

100-calorie Packs Diet - Did you know recent studies show chronic dieters tend to consume more calories when foods and packages are smaller? Consumer behavior was observed in the study regarding "mini-packs," 100-calorie food packages that are marketed to help people control calorie intake.

The study revealed that one group that over-consumes the mini-packs is chronic dieters - individuals making a conscious effort in trying to manage their weight and food intake.

This shows that the distorted perception of small packages may actually undermine dieters' attempts to limit calories.

Consider this: Consumers perceive the mini-packs to be a generous portion of food - numerous small food morsels in each pack and multiple mini-packs in each box - while on the other hand, consumers perceive the mini-packs to be diet food. For chronic dieters, this perceptual dilemma causes a tendency to overeat, due to their emotion-laden relationship with food.

In a series of focus group studi…
