Can you FEEL it? It’s time to win some fab crap from me. It’s simple, all you have to do is submit your guess at my finishing time (official Net Time listed on official Race Website) for my upcoming race . If you are the closest, you are the WINNER (and it’s better than Chicken Dinner). Guesses can be left here on the blog, via Twitter, via Google+, or via Facebook.

The Race: 2014 Quad Cities Marathon on September 28th at 7:30 AM Central
Race Distance: 26.2 miles (standard Marathon distance)
Random info to give you assistance in guessing or Analysis Paralysis:
I’m not sure if you will be able to see them, but they are scatterplots of the Distance in Miles and Pace for the 2014 Quad Cities Marathon Training and the 2013 Darlington Marathon Training. The time period of the training (June 30th – Sept 27) is the same for both years and so helps negate the effect of weather (especially hot weather) on performance.

There’s a Magnetic Note Pad with snowflake design, Sharpie pen, LiveSTRONG coffee mug (no performance enhancing supplements included), Pay It Forward wristband, and the cadillac of all bags a GM licensed Cadillac Bag. I didn’t have time to scavenge for more stuff before we left on our trip, so I’m also thinking about including some random mystery crap.
In addition to fine crap above:
Guessing within +/-2 seconds of official time will score you all the wonderful prizes above and a coupon for a free 20oz Coca-Cola product. Get the time exactly and it will be a coupon for a whole 12 pack of Coca-Cola product.
