Contest: Predict My Finish Time at New Orleans 70.3

The last time I did this was for the Ironman Arizona and it received a pretty good response so I'll do it again with the three Ironman events I'm racing in this year, starting with New Orleans 70.3. The contest is simple, leave a comment with what you think will be my total finishing time for the race. For the 70.3, that would be a 1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike, then 13.1 mile run and two transitions. UPDATE: Due to weather conditions, the swim has been cancelled. The race is now a 2 mile run, 52 mile bike, and 13.1 mile run.

The closest time (can be over or under) wins! Deadline to submit a guess is 5am EST on Sunday, April 22.

It wouldn't be a contest unless there were some stakes involved so here are the prizes:

Runner-Up: USB Flash Drive filled with my favorite workout songs (snail mailed to you)
Winner: $20 Electronic Gift Certificate to my favorite online running shoe source, Runningwarehouse.com

Good Luck!!
