Pre-race handicapping includes the following:
Jordan Hasay ran her 'thon pb of 2:20:57 in 2017 at Chicago. Most recent race was Philly Half- 'thon, 3rd in 1:12:35. Coming off some injuries earlier in the year. She will be running without coach Alberto to guide her. Will she be running on Pure Hate?
Alexi Pappas ran Chicago last year in 2:43:38. This Champion Bravey Greek Goddess is admired by many, but we're not quite sure why. Current fitness level is unknown as Instagram's veracity level is exceptionally low.
Emma Abrahamson has never run a 'ton. She claims to be a washed up former D1 runner. She ran XC and the 1500 at Oregon. She's a YouTuber and is trying to monetize this to avoid having a real job. Currently, she is an assistant coach for the girls XC team at Portland State. This seems somewhat traitorous, but not as bad as Alexi who decided to run for Greece instead of the USA. Emma's current fitness level is unknown, although it is safe to say she is not in contention for the win at the Chi 'Thon.
Jordan = 2:20:08
Alexi = 2:34:30
Emma = 3:35:18
Total Time = 8:29:56
Contest prize is yet to be determined, but might include one of the following:
A signed picture of Al and Jordan in happier times.
A One-Crazed Foodie t-shirt with an oatmeal stain on the front.
A unfinished poem by Alexi that doesn't include any rhymes.
**All are free to enter contest with the exception of any failed television screenwriters from Canada**
