Who Will Win a Prize??? Guess my Finish Time at the Grete’s Gallop 13.1 this Sunday!

Just like we did before my last marathon and half marathon, it’s time to place your bets again… Some of you like to get really close, just seconds away! I think this time will be super close.

Rules: pick a time and write in the comments below. Whoever gets closer, wins, If there’s two identical times, the first poster wins! Make sure if you include seconds in there too, and post before next Saturday 7 am. There’s gonna be prizes… you can pick from:
– a biomechanics session (in NYC)
– a clip-on running metronome
– a  brooks flat vapur water bottle
– a NYC Marathon rain (knee-length, orange and white) poncho
– Knuckle lights
Ok, the data…

My Half PR: NYC Half, March: 1:37:35 Pace: 7:27
Last Half: Brooklyn Half Marathon: May: 1:38:29

My guess: I am sure I will NOT PR. Not only I am not in good shape, but I stopped running for most of July and August because of an ulcer. I started running regularly 2 weeks ago and did 16 hilly miles last Saturday very slowly. I haven’t done any speed since July. Now that I can run, I am focusing on long and endurance and not on my speed. After all, the marathon is 32 days away!

Also, the Grete’s Great Gallop is not the fastest half: TWO loops of Central Park. enough said. 😉

GO ON! Place your bets below!!! (I will probably not look until after!) but I will add more prizes (after I hear back from my sponsors!)

Prizes shipped only within the US, but you can pick it up when you’re in NYC if you are abroad! Or have me send to someone in the US.  / Comments with guesses will only count if they are posted before Sunday 9 am, EST.  / If there are two guesses with the exact same time, the first one wins.

  1. OK since you said you haven’t been running much and that it’s a more difficult course, I’m going for 1:44:44…..because I like 4’s and have no other better reason.:-) Good luck!
