the DATA
  • 5K PR is 21:09 (6:49 pace), from 2012…
  • Last Races
    • June 2016, Achilles Hope & Possibility (4M), 28:43, 7:11 pace
    • May 2016, Airbnb Brooklyn Half Marathon, 1:39:02, 7:34 pace

    • United Airlines NYC Half, 1:36:03, 7:20 pace
My guess: I think a PR could be happening if I am feeling good (thought this might not be the best week to bet on THAT), so I’ll be shooting for 6:48 pace! Apparently, there’s 3 hills, two small, one less small. I am gonna say 20:58.
GO ON! Place your bets below!!! (I will probably not look until after, and no need to be nice!)

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.

  1. You’ve been seriously rocking training lately and I see those stairs regularly. I’m going to go out on a limb here and say 20:24. And it’s going to feel easy.

  2. 21:02 …. was going to say 21 even, but someone beat me to it and 21:01 just sounds like a mean time to guess 🙂 Speedy wishes to you!


  3. Lets go with 21:05, I feel you could do better, but i am late to the party and some good times are taken. What ever time you do get, make it memorable.
