Pittsburgh Marathon by the numbers

One of the really cool things that runners got access to after the race was RunPix, which gave a breakdown of all kinds of stats for the individual runner.

Where was I?
  • When the overall winner finished: between miles 8-9
  • When the female winner finished: close to mile 10
  • When my division winner finished: between miles 10-11
Results compared to:
  • The entire field: 4121st place, 90% of people finished ahead of me, 437 people finished behind me
  • All women: 1558th place, 87% of women finished ahead of me, 237 women finished behind me
  • My division (women 30-34): 265th place, 83% of women finished ahead of me, 52 women finished behind me
  • Men: I finished ahead of about 7% of men runners! 
Kills (number of runners passed)
  • Over the first 20 miles: I passed 152 runners and got passed by 99 people
  • Over the last 6.2 miles: I passed 49 runners and got passed by 15 people
  • Overall kills: 201
  • Net kills: 87
Mile splits - I'm not sure where my Garmin started to get off from the official mile markers, so I included the official splits where they correspond.
  • Mile 1 - 12:31
  • Mile 2 - 11:49
  • Mile 3 - 12:10
  • Mile 4 - 11:55

  • Mile 7 - 11:19
  • Mile 8 - 11:04
  • Mile 9 - 12:40 (bathroom break #1, I took 4-5 bathroom breaks, but I don't remember when any of the others were)
