briefly/modeling

Posted by Arcane Gazebo at October 27, 2003 6:21 PM I just finished reading in the NY Times about an economist who has modeled the effects of aging on marathon running. Conclusion: If I want to achieve my best possible marathon time, I have five years left. This economist has a book out in which he tackles various problems like this, including predicting presidential elections. My love (fetish?) for numbers may be too strong to pass this up. Tags:

Are you training for another marathon? If so, which one? And do you want to try to run it together (not that I could keep up with you)?

I'm considering it, since I've decided to keep up the running program for a while rather than go back to karate now that I'm in better shape. I don't have a particular marathon in mind but I imagine there's no shortage of interesting races in the Bay Area. When and if I do pick one, you are certainly welcome to join me; I'll keep you updated.
