How many miles do you think I'm going to run at FANS this coming weekend? Given the injuries, the sudden increase in temperatures, my lack of training (other than races) and my tendency to go out too fast and not eat right, I'm not expecting to do too well. Post your guess and I'll come up with a prize (free entry into the Chiwaupee?). For those who wish to be anonymous, try the poll on the right.
To help your predictions: Last year, I did the first lap (1.655 miles) in 12:33; this year I'm planning 14:30-16:00. Last year, I hit 50 miles in 7:56; this year I hope to do 8:23-8:34. Last year, I managed 69.4 miles (29 laps) by 12 hours; this year I hope for exactly the same. Last year I was walking the laps after 12 hours in 41-46 minutes. The last two laps each took almost 90 minutes. I quit at 17 hours and 76.72 miles.
