Question 1: Your name. Everyone got that right.
Question 2: Your email. Everyone got that right except Brownie...he said Yellow.
Question 3: Will he puke? The correct answer unfortunately was YES. I did puke once on the 2nd Hope Pass climb. 21 people said no. 19 said yes. So points for 19 of you.
Question 4: What time will Brandon finish in? 28:25 was the highest guess. I was 28:53. A couple people had me in the 28s and I frankly chucked at those when I saw them come in. Who's the fool now? Got a dose of humility there. But on the flip side, I was so encouraged to see the average predicted time be in the 24 hour range. I wish I could have delivered that.
Question 5: Who will win the Showdown rematch? Brownie took it but you all thought I would 27 to 13. Guess it shows that I shouldn't pick a fight with a repeat 100 miler finisher my first time out.
Question 6: Who will drink more alcohol at the after-party? Frankly, we didn't have one. We drank some days before but after the race, it was too long between the finishes for partying. I am going to give the win to Brownie there given he had ~4 hours to sit and wait for me to cross the line after he did.
Question 7: Will Anton Krupicka break the course record? He DNF'd. 24 thought he would break it, versus 17 not. His chances were good but I guess that CR lives on.
AND YOUR WINNER IS....BILL KELLER! He actually nailed every single question. He will get a wonderful gift in the mail shortly.
I like doing these because it gives me a sense of the wisdom of the crowd. Thanks for playing!
