A "Boak"?

I think I might have "Boaked" the Houston Marathon. Roger Boak is a fixture of Houston running. He's one of those great runners who continues to smoke people half his age. I once heard the term "Boak" to describe finishing ahead of everyone your age or older.

I'm stunned. I can't believe I could finish ahead of everyone 48 or older. All of the fast runners must have been running the half-marathon.

Here's a sort of ugly looking finish. I'm much too bald for this camera angle.
