I thought it would be fun to start a new Barbarian tradition.
Entry is 5$. Email me with your predicted time for John (hours, minutes, seconds). I will keep track of guesses (but not release them to John). The winner who is the closest to guessing his time (either over or under is fine, just closest) gets the pot of money donated to a charity of his/her choice. Sound fun? Get in touch before Saturday with your guess.
You can see a report of John's 1/2 Ironman experience on the CBtriathlon blog to help educate your guess.
