And The Winner Is...

So my official time was 37:56, which I actually learned on Wednesday when Accidentally Me graciously admitted that she had not actually "guessed" as required.* Two other commenters also confessed using some internet resources, so they are also disqualifed.

Given those two exclusions, the winner is (drum roll please) Jennifer with a guess of 37:33. Nice work!! So what's it going to be? Shall I send sweets or music? If sweets....cookies, cupcakes (I'm thinking frosting would need to be in a separate container and not cream cheese...which leaves buttercream, peanut butter, chocolate, marshmallow, or a combination of any or all of these or anything you can dream up), buckeyes, Oreo bark, Oreo truffles, chess squares. The options are almost endless!

In other news, date # 4 with Clay was a good time. We grilled out, and if someone would cook dinner for me, I'd eat healthy every night! Tilapia, bell peppers, pineapple, corn, zucchini, and a yummy salad. So date # 5 is Saturday evening.

* While I did not specifically state in the game announcing post that internet sleuthing was not permitted, the word "guess" means to predict without sufficient information. I know you guys all know how to use the internet; I wanted to see how close you could guess by chance, calculation, etc. Next time I'll have you guess my time before I run the race :)

Random aside: Why does Krispy Kreme not glaze it's chocolate covered creme filled doughnuts?

Alright, time to meet with a client. Thank you guys for playing. It was run to read your guesses.

p.s. I'm grateful I was able to finally see my oldest niece (and step-niece) play softball last night. Yeah for living closer to family!

Haha. I got incredibly excited to see my name. But sadly, I am not the winning Jennifer. But congrats to her though. Your contest was fun, even though I got impatient waiting to find out if I had cupcakes coming my way. (o:

I purely guessed. I see I was WAY off as I haven't a clue on your running ability. I have to admit the winnings sound yummy however, such things wouldn't last long in my home. Sweets in my home is like throwing a slab of meat into the Amazon - the Piranha's would devour it ! Be well, have a good weekend & cheers.

Congrats on the race and your time! I'm running a 10K tomorrow. Or hoping to.

I can't believe I missed out on the chance to win cupcakes, though. You must run another race this year and have another contest :)

Bump!

Well, somehow I've gotta quench my cupcake lust!

I realized after my guess that I had not taken into account that you had stated it was "hilly" terrain. Therefore I was thinking a flat course. Could you please run on level ground the same 4 miles to see if my time would have been closest? Thanks. Dr. Rjj

YAY! That's so exciting! I promise I didn't cheat. :)

I would love a prize of music (of your choice) ... not only will it travel better than sweet treats, but I have a feeling you could put together a great mix. What do you think?

Thank you! And congratulations -- 37:33 was a really good time!

Hehehe I see my guess was *way* out. I didn't mean to imply your a poor runner; I honestly don't know running times ;)

I'm Ally, I'm a lawyer and I don't like it when people outsmart me. Blah blah blah.
