Did you just say pre marathon giveaway?

Those of you that did not just stumble upon this blog a minute ago and are now wondering whether or not I'm in desperate need of psychiatric help, might already know that I plan on running the New York Marathon on November 7th. That's 22 days from today. What the heck? No!!! I feel so not prepared!

It will not be my first marathon. My first marathon was the Swiss Alpine Marathon last July. A 6.300 ft elevation mountain marathon. Yeah, wise choice for the first one. I had a blast, though.

The New York Marathon will be, if everything goes as planned AND Immigration will let me enter the US, my second marathon, and my FIRST road marathon.

So, I guess it's time for my first giveaway, huh? :)

TMB @ Racing with Babes (http://racingwithbabes.blogspot.com/) has this great giveaway going at this very moment (!) where you have to guess her finish time. Brilliant idea! So brilliant, that I'm copying you TMB! :)

What's in the goodie bag?

Sorry, I'm not one of those hugely popular bloggers (yet...I hope one day I will have more people following my blog than just my mom...just kidding) that's giving away a Garmin, so I'm giving away a 'will get you through a marathon or at least one long run' goodie bag.

4 X GU Energy Gel Chocolate Outrage



2 x Powerbar Energy Gel Lemon



1 x Sweatyband in Pink-Dots



Plus

A New York Marathon souvenir that I'll pick up at the marathon expo. This one will be a surprise!


What do you have to do to enter this giveaway?

Guess what my finish time will be! And let me know in a comment. Ofcourse...you can also guess 'DNS' or 'DNF'. After all...I am battling a knee injury at the moment.

If several entrees would give the same finishing time, I will let random.org pick the winner.

You get one guess (mandatory):

1. Become a follower of my blog and let me know in a comment.


You get one extra guess for each of the following (separate comments):

1. Like me on Facebook and let me know in a comment: (http://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/Silly-Girl-Running/134622179906574);

2. Repost this giveaway on your blog / Facebookpage / Twitter, etcetera and let me know in a comment;

3. Like me on Twitter (@SillyGirlRunnin) and let me know in a comment.

This giveaway ends on November 6th!

Okay, there we go! Guess along!

3:58:12, oh ja, die kl#te hobbel vlak voor de finish doet wel pijn hoor!!

En eeuhm een DNS en DNF bestaan niet, want zo zegt het spandoek als je Brooklyn in loopt: There's only one way to quit, and that is the Finishline!
