There were some world records set Sunday at the Skechers Performance Los Angeles Marathon, but not the type that elite runners covet.

There was the fastest marathon by someone dressed as a car. Fastest marathon by someone dressed as a three-dimensional bird. And fastest marathon by someone wearing lederhosen.
