Guess my Finish Time at the Mohawk Hudson River Marathon

I am running a marathon this Sunday and because I am not stressed enough, I figured I’d see who has the most guts to dare guess a finish time.

No real rules here and no prizes (as I’ve done for every race before this one) because I am in LAZY blogger mode. Sorry Not Sorry.

Here’s the Deets:

  • Race is pretty flat they say, we shall see.
  • Last races were the
    • New Balance Bronx 10 Mile, in 1:16:28 / 7:39 pace
    • Percy Sutton Harlem 5K, in 21:58 / 7:05 pace
    • NYRR R U N 5K, in 21:57 / 7:04 pace
      • if it matters to you, they were all in hot weather.
  • Predictors based on those races shoot out a 3:29 to 3:31
  • Last Halfs were 1:40, 1:37 and 1:37.

Go ahead, place your bets below. And good luck (to me).

My guessI don’t think I am in PR shape. Maaaaybe close but not really there. For example, I did the same 4 miler one month ago, and I was 12 seconds slower this year..

the DATA
My guessNo idea, range could be between 3:25 and 3:45… so I truly have no clue. I had a great training year, my best ever if I can say so myself, but my halfs this fall weren’t great and I am totally not motivated to do the marathon. I am going. I am trying my best (hopefully) but I haven’t done a marathon in two years so I am not even sure if I can get it up for
