By the numbers

November 21, 2007 Leave a comment Go to comments

Since finishing the marathon became such a high priority, I never did look at the actual statistics with where I finished. According to the marathon’s Web site there were 3,783 starters. You have to do a little digging to find that there were 3,684 finishers.

I placed 1,852nd overall, so I was barely in the second half. A mid-packer. Out of 230 in my age group (25-29), I was 131st. And out of 2,215 male finishers, I was 1,272nd. Crazy, crazy numbers since I’m so used to runners with 200 or fewer people. These are all numbers that generally I don’t care too much about, but they’re out there for me to possibly challenge one day.
