    If you're going to slow down and raise your index finger as the first-place runner, you might want to wait until you actually win the race.

    Ben Payne learned that the hard way Saturday running in the men's open division of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution Peachtree 10K. Decked out in a red, white and blue outfit on July 4, Payne celebrated too early, allowing the charging British Olympian Scott Overall to catch up. Overall was eventually declared the winner by 9/100 of a second.

    That's a feel good story if I ever saw one. The only thing better would be if Payne shit his pants as soon as he crossed

    It really begs the question: if Overall had that much remaining in the tank, why didn't he win this thing by a LOT?!
