Guess My Time

hat’s right! It’s time for ANOTHER contest for my upcoming race (Expo 10k). This will be one of those standard Guess My Time, Win Crap contest. Your entry (submitted only as a comment to this post) is your entry to guessing my official (from KTC website) time. I am going to take the time that is closest to my official time (either above or below) as the winner. If there are ties, the person who submitted their time first will get the Grand prize, the other people will win conciliation crap prizes. Winners who want their crap prizes must submit their mailing address to me on my quest to conquer the world send so that I can mail their crap prize (unless I already have it).

Since there is a delay in posting the results to the KTC website and I don’t think that I have a single reader in Knoxville who will be there on race day, you can post until sometime on Saturday (05-24-2008) when I will close the comments. So… if you can comment, you can guess.

And if you aren’t technically gifted to leave a comment, I might be gracious enough to accept a guess via the comment link at the top or a phone call (if you know my 1-900 #).

What kind of crap Prize will I win?

Does it really matter? Seriously… it doesn’t matter. Since you are twisting my virtual arm. It’s a bag. It’s green… Sling Backpack. I’ll post a picture of it, so you can bask in it’s awesomeness before you make your wager.

Imagine a Prize Here

So what kind of time should I submit?

Well, a 10k is 6.2 miles. This is a new layout to this race for me, so I am not exactly sure the course will suit me, but I am running in Knoxville, my home turf. I can tell you right now that I doubt I will finish faster that 50:00 minutes and I won’t be slower than 1:00:00 (one hour). So there… figure the time out and comment below.
