I can't wait to go for a spin in these puppies after work today!
It's good that they came today too, since yesterday the "official" predictions for my bet with Jamie Donaldson were sealed in their envelopes. The rules are we have to try and predict the other's total miles run, and after the race, the closest guess (over or under) wins. The exact details of what the winner gets are still being worked out, but I'm just happy Jamie didn't know about these secret weapon sneakers of mine before making her prediction. These things have to add 30 or 40 miles to my total, right?!!
I conjunction with Jamie's current post, I'll open things up for everyone to predict my total miles here. I'll have to think of a nice prize to give the person who get closest to my actual total. It'll probably be something unique from the race in France...like a program or the timing mat or whatever I can steal from the course and smuggle back through customs. Whatever it is, I'll be sure to make it cool, so guess away!!
