If you followed my pack burro racing adventures, then you may remember that my racing experience conveniently occurred one week before the 29-mile World Championship Pack Burro Race.

Now that the results are in, it’s time to make some dummy calculations to determine how long it would have taken me to finish.

In my race, the 4-mile Idaho Springs Pack Burro Race, the winner finished in about 40 minutes while I finished in one hour and 15 minutes.

In the world championship, last year’s Triple Crown winner Bobby Lewis crossed the finish line in five hours, 56 minutes, and 23 seconds. Based upon an elaborate system of complex equations, I can confidently say that my world championship race time would be 23 days, 17 hours, 59 minutes, and 45 seconds.

Maybe I’ll get a chance to prove I’m better than that next year.
