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.

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 it to someone in the US.  / Comments with guesses will only count if they are posted here (not on facebook, not on runnersworld.com, HERE) before Saturday 8 pm.  / If there are two guesses with the exact same time, the first one wins.
