Today is the AREC Prediction Run. Basically, it is the same run as usual, only no one is allowed to wear his/her watch and has to make a prediction as to the time. I figure that I will run with Inger, as usual, and we will just run and talk and do our usual pace… but Inger is late.
I end up running with another gal and try to simulate running the same pace. I predicted 41:45 and ran 41:22… which was good enough for 10th place. The best predictor was off by 5 seconds and the worst was off by 18 minutes!
