San Francisco Marathon 2011

So a week ago, as part of my do one really crazy physical event every summer challenge (2 years running), I ran my first marathon. As I have been working in San Francisco since early June, and training in San Francisco, I figured that the San Francisco Marathon would be a great event to try out. Last Sunday, I got up around 4am to go run my first marathon. It was an incredible experience and I will never forget running over the Golden Gate Bridge with 24,000 of my closest marathon running friends. I finished in 3:55:34 and if you want more detail, they had digital tags that kept track of our time thoughout the track, find em here. Congratuations to all the other runners and thank you to all of the volunteers who gave me gatorade and cheered me on. Couldn't have done it without you. Couple of pics below.

 

Is there a correlation between hours slept and final exam performance?

Well, I will tell you! I recently completed a project for my AP Statistics Class and the American Statistics Association Project Competition on that very subject. My report can be found right here, under my Independent Projects heading at the top of this page, and embedded below for your convenience.

Let me know if you have any questions about it, my data set, or my methods.

Enjoy!
