Today there was a "Polar 5K" sponsored by the Society of Pre-Health Students. I'm afraid it wasn't too polar. It was sunny and high 30's. A nice day for a run.
They had a contest where you were supposed to predict your winning time. The person who came closest to their prediction won a $30 gift card. When I signed up, I was really optimistic. I said "29 minutes". When I got there, and got a look at the course (hilly!) and monitored my condition (flabby!), I thought that was probably a bit optimistic. I asked if I could change my prediction. They kind of hemmed and hawed, and I withdrew the question. I probably would have said 32 minutes, and I would have been right on. I finished in 32:03. But I don't know if I could have accepted the prize if I'd changed my prediction.
Anyway, it was a good time, and I'm happy with my results.
