Friday Randomness

I wimped out and didn’t run today. Well actually it was at my limit — 0* — so I opted out. I was planning on an easy 4 miles as my last run before the Manhattan Half Marathon on Sunday so I think I’ll be OK. Tomorrow will be a rest day.

And that might be my last Saturday rest day for a long time! (Which I will enjoy by sleeping in as late as possible.) I am plowing through Hansons Marathon Method and loving every minute… I am getting really excited to start their training plan.

Who else is fired up that it’s FRIDAY?!


Favorite Five



So the good old Super Bowl is only a week or so away… I’m sightly bitter than my Packers aren’t there but there is always next year. I do think it’s super cool that two brothers will be coaching against each other in the Super Bowl. I was reading yesterday about the chances of that happening — this statistics professor calculated it and this is what she found:

The odds of brothers coaching against each other in the season’s biggest game at 1 in 255 when the brothers are head coaches in different conferences of the National Football League.


That doesn’t seem like that crazy of odds… but then she broke it down further:

The odds get longer when the field of candidates is expanded to encompass all NFL head coaches, the 64 offensive and defensive coordinators, six former NFL head coaches, 68 coaches at major college football programs who have the potential to become an NFL coach and 12 other position coaches who could become head coach of a team, says Ensor. With these factors at play and only one set of brothers in the pool, the odds jump to 1 in 11,175.


I still think it would have been rarer than winning a lottery jackpot… but I guess not. Now, if you are their parents, who do you root for?
