...you'd be wrong!
I haven't forgotten. I've just conveniently been busy catching up on everything I put on hold the last two weeks (or more) including consolidating my student loans (man that takes a lot of time), cashing a months worth of checks (that should keep the finance monster at bay for a couple days), and finding the floor in my room (I knew it was under there somewhere!).
But a-n-y-w-a-y-s... Last Sunday I raced the Amica Ironman 70.3 Rhode Island and before that, I asked you guys to take an informative (or wild) guess at what my finish time might be. I must admit I was quite impressed with the guesses.
There were twenty predictions ranging from 4:55:45 up to 6:13:00 with an average of 5:16:44. My official finish time was 5:31:52 and wouldn't you know it?, there were four people within 2% of that; Big Daddy Diesel, Colleen, TMB, and Mike.
Now, while all four of you were extremely close, only one of you (and you already know who you are) was actually within a statistically perfect prediction. Mike @ Mike's Triathlon Journey had a prediction of 5:32:00 which was only off by 0.04%. There might be a future in gambling there! *cough* I mean coaching
So Mike, give me a shout out at BECOMINGANIRONMAN @ Hotmail.com and we can figure things out. I got a bit side-tracked by the awards ceremony on race day, but I had a bit of a revelation the other day on a pretty cool nutrition package I could put together.
Stay fit. Stay healthy. Stay safe.
