Thursday Thoughts

Welcome to the Boston Marathon edition of Thursday Thoughts. Do a little research, my friends, sharpen your pencils and pull out your calculators. This Thursday Thought is going to take some thought.

On Monday, the Boston Marathon will be my 12th marathon and my 4th Boston overall. You can read about my other Boston experiences here, here, and here. You've also seen my HUGE improvements since I started working with Liz in July--I dropped 5 minutes in the marathon and 3 minutes in the half marathon.

So today's question, what is your time prediction for me in the Boston Marathon?

What's in it for you? A PRIZE! The person closest to the correct answer will receive a Boston Marathon-related prize. The winner will be announced next week after the marathon.

The fine print. Dave and Liz are not eligible. :) All entries must be submitted by 8:00am Monday April 20th.

If you post anonymously, you can't really be eligible for the prize. :)

Good Luck and have a great time!

My guess??? Hmmm... I'll throw 3:28:53 out there.

Today, the weather looks perfect for it (at least for us in the Midwest who are used to the cold!)... so I am guessing 3:34:26.

Race smart and have fun.

I WANT TO PLAY! And my guess has not been guessed yet.

I'd love to know what your guess is Liz, but you're still not eligible. :)

I'll guess 2:51:40. Oh wait, factoring in the 12-mph headwind... I'll adjust my official guess to 3:37:15.

I'll go with a conservative guess, but still a Boston PR

3:39:23....

GOOD LUCK! HAVE FUN! And sometime think about running the Equinox Marathon in Fairbanks- Check Alaska off the list and do a absolutely kick a$$ mostly trail marathon.
