Dateline one week ago: Inger and I decided to figure out what kind of time we are running, in order to accurately gauge our predicted running time. We ran 43:20, so it seemed reasonable that we would run something similar.
For the Prediction Run, you cannot wear your watch or use any timing device (other than counting aloud). I decided to predict 43:11 (slightly faster) and Inger predicted 43:24 (slightly slower). We came in at 43:35, which put me in about 20th place and Inger in 3rd.
I guess it says something about everyone’s consistency when I am only 24 seconds off my prediction and it is only 20th best!
