Y/N: Sub-2:14 for Lehmkuhle or Vega at Boston?

The Boston Marathon has assembled it's typical collection of top-notch international talent in Beantown for the Patriot's Day race. In historically one of the most storied road races in the world, two Team USA Minnesota men will be front-and-center. While Ryan Hall and Meb Keflezighi will get most of the publicity among American athletes, Jason Lehmkuhle and Antonio Vega could do some damage from under the radar.

13.1 Mpls

Lehmkuhle, the marathon veteran of the two, has indicated he would like to run "in the 2:11 range." Vega, the upstart, reported that he would like to run "in the 2:10 - 2:12 range."

How fast do you think they will run?

Y/N: Will Jason Lehmkuhle or Antonio Vega run faster than 2:14:00 at the Boston Marathon on Monday?

Jason Lehmkuhle has a 2:12:54 marathon best that was run in the 2008 Olympic Trials in New York. He has finished 5th and 9th at the last two Marathon Olympic Trials. Lehmkuhle's most impressive race this spring occurred at the USA 15k championship where he ran 43:58 to place fourth.

Antonio Vega has run two marathons with a best of 2:15:45. Vega has taken his running to a new level this year, highlighted by his 1:01:54 National Championship at half-marathon.

To play our game, simply type "yes" or "no" into the subject line of an e-mail and send it to us at DtBFantasy [AT] gmail [DOT] com before 9:00 A.M. CST, Monday, April 19th. Please put your answer in the subject line of the e-mail and make sure your full name appears somewhere in the e-mail. We will continue to offer a bonus for participants making their debut in Yes/No - a correct answer will be worth two points for any first-time players.

My answer: No

The question from last week was: Will Derall King throw 54 feet or further in the shot put at the Hamline Invite Saturday? Only six players answered correctly with a no response. Some of the correct answers came from Jesse Schoen, who moved into second place, and Gregg Robertson, Chris Marshall and Lori Anne Peterson, who are all now tied for fourth.

For all the results, please visit DtBFantasy Corner.

Good luck and thanks for playing Yes/No on DtB!
