(I thought a picture of Annabelle in her Halloween costume was appropriate for the announcement of the CALORIE CONTEST WINNER)

Due to an unfair competitive advantage by being Mark's former roommate, in college and during the 2004 Olympic games, Bryce (who guessed 3,600 calories) has been disqualified.

So, without further adieu...

Anna Calhoun

You guessed that Mark would eat 3,500 calories in a normal training day. Mark actually consumed....

3,740.5 calories

Here is the breakdown:
3/4 cup plain oatmeal 225
1 package brown sugar oatmeal 160
3/8 cup raisins
4 eggs 400
3/4 cup plain oatmeal 225
1 package brown sugar oatmeal 160
3/8 cup raisins
10oz cup of coffee with cream and sugar 70
1 apple 65
1 cup of black beans and rice 190
1/2 cup Lima beans 88
1 grilled chicken breast 120
2 tbsp ketchup 30
Turkey, roast beef, ham and provolone sandwich (lettuce, tomato, onion, spicy mustard and mayo)
pickle spear 5
16oz Gatorade
1.5 cups General Tso's chicken 439.5
1/2 cup fried rice 160
Chicken lo mien

Though there can only be one winning guess... we were overwhelmed with the amount of participation. So, Mark decided that next 5 closest guesses should receive an autographed USA swim cap. The additional 5 winners are:

Rob Butcher (Executive Director of U.S. Masters Swimming)
Renae Mitchell
Fiona Lee
Pamela (Sorry... no last name, but you left a comment on the blog!)

Please email us your shipping address to receive your autographed swim cap at

We also just got word that Mark's book: S.W.I.M. Setting Goals with Mark Gangloff will be shipped in the coming weeks. I think this would make an excellent prize for another contest, but what contest? Have any ideas?
