We have a prop bet that is just now going public. Feel free to find a betting parter and make your own wagers.
Who is "we" you ask?
It's me and G-Rob.
Here's the bet and the background.
On July 10th, 2010, G-Rob will have a weigh in and must have lost at least 75 lbs. from his 334 lb. starting weight. He must get down to 259 lbs. by that date or pay me $300.
My end of the deal is as follows: On July 11th, 2010, in Gaffney, South Carolina, I will run a 10k road race in 52:30 or less. That's effectively 6.21 miles at an 8:27 pace. I have never run more than 5 miles at once in my life.
If we both succeed or both fail, the bet is a push. For the payoff to occur, one must succeed and the other must fail.
Of course, he's already sending me texts and calling me to quit now and just ship it because he can't looooose. He ha' full house!. Not.
I started my program yesterday, and with the help of a secret weapon, plan on destroying him, his lack of self-discipline, and his penchant to give up after 2 months. I told him to stop texting me until he hits the 275 lb. mark and cries that he can't lose any more.
As I just told him, I'll be having steak for dinner, with a full tasty glass of.....
here it comes....
Mmmmmm...can you taste it? I can.
