Running, Running and more Running

Running, Running and more an apt description of my life last week.

As my husband commented on Sunday afternoon (when I was heading for my second nap of the weekend), in the past 8 days, I have been in an athletic event 50% of the days.

First I did my IronGirl Tri, next I ran a marathon near my hometown I grew up in, Saturday I ran a 5km race near my new hometown and finally Sunday I finished off my week of athletics at the Annapolis 10 miler. For some of these events I tried to do well but really did poorly (IronGirl--although word on the street is that the swim might have been long!). One event I was keeping company with a friend and wanted to run her pace regardless of what it was (CJ's Race to Remember on the C&O Canal). One event I wanted to ensure I went quick enough to spend some quality time afterwards with my dad (Self Transcendence Marathon) and one event all I wanted to do was finish in the alotted time.

In summary I did the
IronGirl Tri in 3:40
Self Transcendence Marathon in 4:58:13 (5 seconds slower then my dads picture!)
CJ's Run to Remember in ???? (because they still have not posted the results.)
My best guess is about 50 minutes for this 5 km run.
Annapolis 10 miler in 1:41:05

I have pictures in my camera that I want to post; but so far I have not downloaded them.

My lame excuse is that I am too busy working on the statistical conference I am the co-chair of, which is less than 4 weeks away. Current enrollment is over 600 attendee's (with a cap of 750 statisticians, which we just may meet!)

Wait. If you already have 600 statisticians registered, and the conference is capped at 750 statisticians, then you're nearly HALFWAY to your goal.

Statistically speaking.

I've crunched the numbers and I believe I am correct in my conclusion.

Except in one small regard:

That isn't really a statistic, strictly speaking.

O, yeah - plus, it's wrong.

Well, considering 600 out of 750 statisticians in a conference is halfway there is like saying 50% of a marathon is in the last 6.2 miles. And I hear this all the time, so it must be true, right?
