the DATA
My guess: I have no idea. After the “slow” 1:36:28 in NJ I have no clue what is going on or what could happen… To tell you the truth, there’s something funky happening with my heart rate in the last 5 days, so even a DNS might be a good guess right now! I have a 10K this weekend which might help figure this out (or tire me out for Brooklyn!!!).
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.  / Guesses will only count if done before Friday 8 pm, ET.  on this original post / Other comments anywhere else (Runners World, facebook, twitter, etc.) won’t count / If there are two guesses with the exact same time, the first one wins.

My Half PR:
– NYC Half, March, 2013: 1:37:35 Pace: 7:27
Last Halfs/Marathons:
– Staten Island Half: October, 2015: 1:37:38
– Airbnb Brooklyn Half: May, 2015: 1:39:10
– United Airlines NYC Half, March 2015: 1:39:26

My guess: I am going to try my best to PR. If all goes well (who knows, it’s still Monday when I write this) I think I could PR. My adductor is still bothering me, and has been bothering quite a bit for the last 10 days. I still think I can PR. Maybe not by a lot but maybe around 1:36-1:37. At least that’s the goal!

Who Will Win a Prize??? Guess my Finish Time at the NYC Half next Sunday!

Just like I did for pretty much every race in the last 18 months, it’s time to place your bets again… I love how there is always someone who nails it right in the head!

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 Sunday, March 16th. 
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
– a pack of travel bodiglide
Ok, the DATA

My Half PR:
– NYC Half, March, 2013: 1:37:35 Pace: 7:27
Last Halfs/Marathons:
– Brooklyn Half Marathon: May, 2013: 1:38:29
– Grete’s Gallop, October 2013: 1:44:33
– New York City Marathon, November 2013: 3:49:33

My guess: I am sure I will NOT PR. Not only I am not in good shape, but since I stopped running for most of July and August last year (because of an ulcer) I really haven’t gotten back on track. The Marathon was super slow and the winter weather laziness slowed me down a lot more. I haven’t done a run over 14 miles since, not more than 50 miles a month, and 10 milers pace is around 9:30. I am guessing around 1:50.

Guess my Finish Time at the 2013 New York City Marathon, and WIN a prize!

Just like we did before my last marathon and half marathon, it’s time to place your bets again… There is always someone who hits it right in the head! (always unbelievable! look the one I did three weeks ago! guesses here, winner here)

Rules: pick a finish time and write in the comments below. Whoever gets closer, wins, If there’s two identical times, the first poster wins! All guesses have to be in this post. Make sure if you include seconds in there too (like so: 3:11:22, ha), and post before next Saturday at 9 pm EST. 

As usual, 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
  • a Garmin FR70 watch
  • SLS3 Compression race sleeves, white, S/M
  • Craft Compression socks, white, M

Ok, the data…

Last Marathons:

  • Berlin, September 2012, 3:27:44.
  • National Marathon, March 2011: 3:37:53.
  • Before that, most marathons I did were 3:42, 3:45, 3:45, 3:51 (my first one).

I haven’t done a marathon since September last year, so all I have is one race, a half marathon early October, where I did 1:43:33.

Running Calculators!

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. Then I fell and that killed my only long run this year (since last year’s Berlin marathon, I haven’t run over 14 miles once!!). I tried to do some more running, and now I have some weird muscle thing I haven’t figured out yet… I am not even sure I can run it but I will definitely try! If I make it to the start I’d like to get a course PR, which would be sub 3:42:33. That’d be my goal.

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 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. 😉
