†††† Don Otjen missed his prediction of his 5K time by 2 seconds to capture the guesstimate

portion of the 5K on March 9, 2015.Rounding out the top 5 were: David Rusher 2- six second

miss, Mong Noiboonsook 2- six second miss, Dave Parsel 4- 11 second miss, Kie Soohoo 5-

13 second miss, Jim Heller 5- 13 second miss and Tim Sydlowski 5- 13 second miss.

†††† Experience appeared to count in predicting your time.None of the 16 runners running fewer than 18 races finished in the top 7.The average number of races ran by the 40 participants was 68 races while the average of the top 7 finishers in the guesstimate races was 101 races.The 16 runners who had run the fewest races have averaged 8 races.
