My Guess is 2:31 :)

Anyways I am in Portland right now shooting Gwen. What are some questions you guys have for her?

Sorry for no videos the last couple weeks. We had some cooking ones in the que but decided to just hold them and wait until we got more marathon training content. so What do you wanna see?

Yeah, what does she think about your guess compared to the optimists here?

Current forecast for Sunday is high 50's and overcast with ~10 mph northerly winds. Of course, this is still almost a week out but seemingly good conditions save for the wind. Anyone who has done it know how the winds affect the race?

I am still optimistic about her time at sub-2:25. If I have to get exact, I'll say 2:23:46

I'm glad this thread got back on the front page, how about some links to where we can watch it live?? You guys are the best at finding free viewing, so give us a US centric site or two, and some for our overseas, northern, and southern neighbors who are also interested..

Awesome, thanks. Now just hope when I log in at 7am that it is not swamped and running smoothly. They probably budget for a couple 1000 folks for something fringe like this, but the ST and general triathlete tune in for this is going to be Yuuuge!!!

I certainly haven't paid much attention to this race as it was going on in the past.

Where are you seeing this forecast? Every forecast I have looked at says low 60s at the start to high 60s or low 70s later in the day.

I'd much prefer your forecast, but I haven't seen it.

I use Dark Sky. the specific location I picked was around race start. Haven't yet decided how accurate it is but I figure if it is what BBS uses, it's good enough for me!

I'll say 2:25:57. It would be a heck of a time for her, and that number also reminds me of a Married with Children episode.

Nah. Just being able to say "I knew it!" If you were the closest (without going over), I'd buy you a cup of coffee if I ever ran into you.

DNF

I don't think she will finish after she falls off her goal pace around the half way mark
