Below you will the close to final vote totals in the 2012 Puma LRC Marathon Trials Prediction Contest as of 12:28 am ET (LetsRun.com never sleeps).

As compared to two days ago, a lot has changed on the men's side (nothing has changed in the top 10 for the women). Ryan Hall and Meb Keflezighi have flipped places at #2 and #3 as the LRC nation has been influenced by positive press for Ritz as well as us picking Ritz for the win. Additionally, positive press has vaulted Abdi from #10 to #8. The poll results from two days ago show up at the bottom of this pace.
