It’s race time in the Higgins household and that means… well, lots of things. But for me it’s time to figure out what crap I can find to offer as a prize for the winner of Guess My Time, Win Crap Contest.
So, Here are the rules (in no particular order): Click on the Contest Arena of my website (Hint: It’s at the top of the website.) You’ll see the entry form… wait. IF the entry form is there, you can still play. If it’s not there… I can’t go for that… no can do. You’ll have to wait until the next contest.
So, you fill in the form. Send it in and wait patiently for the results. My guess is that they will post them later in the day. Of course, if I do that Twitter thing that all the cool kids are doing, then you might find out my time earlier. However, as with all of my crappy contests the official race time as published by the race entity or its affiliates will be the end all and be all of the results.

Guess Accuracy: This contest will be the Over/Under format, which means the closest time guessed over or under my official race time will be the winner of the contest. Should you fall within +/- 2 Seconds of the time, then your prize will either be upgraded or an extra prize will be included. Should your guess be 100% accurate, then you’ll get something even better! But it’s a secret at this point.
Official Entry: Your official entry time will be the time stamp on my email of your guess. You may enter more than once, but your most recent time will be your official Guess. IF for some reason you can’t use the comment form, you may use other methods to submit your guess. Check out Where To Find Me on the Right Side Bar, but there is no guarantee that your guess will make it… but I’m a pretty nice guy, I might let it slide.
Disclaimer: If you do win AND you want your prize AND if I don’t have it already, you must submit to me your mailing address so that I can send you the prize and/or prizes. This of course, will subject you such things as random mailings, holiday greetings and anything else that I might have in store for you. MUHAHAHAHA
You can also track my progress and your chances to win…(click here to sign up)
Hmm, didn’t see a form on the contest page and you haven’t yet run the marathon so I’ll leave my guess here: 4:30.
And if it doesn’t count, good luck anyway!!
