Place Your Bets Giveaway Winner

I'm sure you've already thought "Hey, did this guy conveniently forget about the giveaway he posted?"'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 @ 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.

That's pretty impressive! :)

And I hope you didn't take my last comment wrong about getting the AG rolldown. I think it's totally kick butt that you were at the right place then! You may not have intended to get one, but you did and that's all that matters!

it's all about pace said...

well done Mike... (and you too Kurt)
