The semi-marathon of Paris 2011
This post is a tribute to my friends who ran this Sunday. If I had known in advance, I would surely had joined you guys, or found a better excuse not to. Anyway, about 30,000 people tried to finish the semi-marathon, and 23764 did (plotted below).[Edit: this is the 2nd version of the vis. The first, much slower one can be found here. In the previous version I showed all individual runners, here they are binned so the vis is much quicker to draw] All the data was scraped from the result page. Runners, you can see your progresses by typing in your bib#. Vincent said he was humiliated by a Malory Greene, so Malory if you want to see you beating Vincent type in 20187. Oh and the winner has bib# 4. The fastest girl is #102.
