Hey 'BoomerNation, here's your chance to test your race prediction powers ... and spread a little charity to boot.
It's a contest and here's how it works. Be the closest in predicting my finishing time at the Boston Marathon on April 16, 2007 and you'll win. If your guess is the closest to my actual finishing time I'll make a $50 donation to the charity of your choice. And you'll get some nifty TriBoomer schwagg.
(It might only be an autographed and crumpled Gatorade cup but at least you'll have something suitable for display.)
To help you in making your super duper guesses here are my personal bests at various distances:
1 mile: 6 minutes, 17 seconds
5k: 23 minutes, 51 seconds
10k: 51 minutes, 09 seconds
Half Marathon: 1 hour, 54 minutes, 39 seconds
Marathon (Ironman Florida): 6 hours, 00 minutes, 03 seconds*.
*Yah, I was hardly running faster than my stink but whadayagonnado? It was my first Ironman afterall.
Legal mumbo jumo as written by the law firm of Dewey, Cheetham, and Howe ...
Official finishing time is the electronic chip time. The deadline for predictions is midnight April 15th Pacific Time. A prediction must be posted in the comment section of this or any future posts up until the deadline. (No emails please.) Predictions may be changed by submitting a comment with the updated time before the deadline. The last prediction received by a blogger is considered to be their final prediction. Contest is void where prohibited. Not valid in any city that the sun doesn't rise in the east and Perry County, Pennsylvania. ('cuz I gots a problem with them hillbillies.)
