Prediction Race

I got this idea from an e-mail sent out by the Morristown Running Company, and I thought it would be a fun thing to do with the NYC Running Tweeps crowd. Basically, a prediction race is one where you run a set distance (I'm going to propose the Central Park 4 Mi Loop that we all know and love), and give a planned finish time before you start. The runner who runs closest to their planned finish time (without wearing a watch) wins!

I think it would be a great opportunity for those that aren't gifted with speedy legs to have a chance at winning something!

I'll suggest that each runner tosses $10 into a hat, and the proceeds get divided between the top 3 finishers - then, most importantly, WE DRINK! Hell, there may even be a case of Odwalla bars in it for each of the top 3 finishers.

Leave a comment if this sounds interesting to you - and if we get enough interest - I can put together an evite for the race!

I'd prefer to pick the number of beers I'll drink at the finish. I'm going with: 30. See you there! (Just kidding - I won't be able to see anything because I'll be blacked out. Is this blog supposed to be family-friendly? I think I've said too much...)
