Because you all are such a great group of people and I just love to give.....................<br><br>
Yes my friends it's that time again. Time for what you ask? Time for another fun filled contest brought to you buy yours truly.<br><br>
Thanks to <b>Moonie</b> for the idea here's all you have to do.<br><br><b>Make a guess at what my finishing time will be in the upcoming Philadelphia Marathon (I'm running the full) down to the second.</b><br><br>
A guess would look something like 2:25:36 (not that I'll be anywhere close to that, but you get the idea.)<br><br>
The person who guesses the closest to my actual finishing chip time wins the contest.<br><br>
The winner of this contest will receive..........................<br><br>
A <span style="font-size:x-large;"><span style="color:#000080;"><b>TIMEX SPEED/DISTANCE WATCH</b></span></span> - Using GPS technology this watch can record and monitor your pace, speed distance etc. It also has all the regular Timex features (alarms, stopwatch, timer, date, dual time zones etc.)<br><br><img alt="" src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v201/lgreenberg/Untitled-1-19.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br><br><span style="text-decoration:underline;"><b><span style="font-size:medium;">A few rules.</span><br><br></b></span>1. This contest is open to anyone except the winner of my previous contest (sorry Moonie.)<br><br>
2. All guesses are to be posted here.<br><br>
3. You have until 6 PM Friday November 16th to make your guess.<br><br>
4. I will offer no other information on my race plans other that the wealth of information that I've already posted.<br><br>
5. If you win the watch please keep it - no selling on Ebay. If you win and don't like it you have to promise to forward it to another KR member.<br><br>
6. In the event of a tie I will place the names of the people with the winning guesses in a hat and draw a name out to determine the winner.<br><br><span style="font-size:large;"><span style="text-decoration:underline;"><b>HERE ARE THE CURRENT GUESSES:<br><br></b></span></span><img alt="" src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v201/lgreenberg/Untitled-2-9.jpg" style="border:0px solid;">

I'm not voting since I have my garmin but I just want to say once again that you are a might generous man, LLsantaBerg, or maybe the running philanthropist approach LLpaulNewmanBerg...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/hello2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hello1">

At this point, I'm figuring it's a gadget which will do someone else more good than me, so I figure the only way I should win would be if something out of the realm of possibility were to happen, like you mutate and grow rocket jets on your back and blaze your way to a new world running record.

Why is everybody guessing slower than what you did at NYC?<br><br><b>3:44:58<br><br></b>but i don't want the watch, just the pride of knowing i beat you all.
