Marathon Results - Statistical Distribution Tool - MS Excel

So, being a bit of a stats freak, and an Excel nut, and having nothing to do over lunch time, and having a little insomnia, without further ado - I present the Official Unofficial Ottawa Marathon Results Statistical Distribution Tool - Microsoft Excel Edition.

You can download your own copy by clicking the above link!

Basically plug in a Gender - a lower age limit and an upper age limit, and it graphs the distribution of finish times.  Here's some examples of what it can do.

Graph of Males, 40 to 44. Did you find me?

Distribution of all Women's finishing times.

Distribution of all Male Finishing Times

Here's the link to the Excel file in case you missed it earlier. Happy Graphing.
