I am floored by your support, and your desire to win some amazing shoes –
111 people made a guess at what my official time would be for the 38th Marine Corp Marathon in order to win the Mizuno Wave Rider 17 Giveaway.
Most guesses were between 4:45 and 5:05 (probably very realistic) with a few spreading themselves out even further by guessing between 4:30 (I wish) and 5:15.
The lowest guess was 4:01:-01 (Dan I think I love you) and the highest was November by my super smart alec, baby brother.
However, my official time was 5:47:38.
So, with the highest time guess (no one went over except said jerk face brother) of 5:22:11 Tyly will be getting an early Christmas present from Mizuno Running.
Aren’t they pretty!?!
Email me your full shipping info at backatsquarezero at gmail dot com.
Then lookout for a fabulous box near the Dec 5th release date.
Why then was my time so high that even the winner was 25 minutes too low?
Well, look for a full marathon recap on Wednesday to hear all about it.
However, I can tell you that this was my favorite race and I do not regret anything.
It cam down to a decision:
– Run it for myself and attempt to PR.
– Stick with a friend who was struggling and push, pull, and harass her through her first marathon.
* I am so happy I went with the later.
