Cool Numbers

I love number trends.  For me personally, I am surrounded by 6’s.  They seem to be everywhere in my life:  born in June (6th month), 6 minutes older than my twin, 6 days on the calendar before my younger brother, graduated in the 66th commencement class in 2006….and it goes on like that.

So I started to see a cool number trend related to my recently run marathon, Maine Coast Marathon -
  • Race was run in the 1980’s but then stopped for….26 years
  • The course distance….26.2 miles
  • The winner’s age….26
  • # of official finishers….262
  • Scott’s bib #....262
  • # of marathons Scott has run….26
  • % of runners who qualified for Boston….26%

All I can say is, whoa.  I gotta find me a lottery to play!

    1. Oddly enough, Scott came home from work with 2 lottery tickets and one of them (for real) had 26 as one of the numbers. Hmmmm.....

      And yes, I have a twin brother who I love to call my "younger" brother. I'm sure he loves it too!

  7. Wow that's pretty crazy! When I moved to my old house my street number, phone # and SSN all shared the same sequence....forever I said I was going to play those lotto #s but never did...I guess it would help if I actually played the lottery.

    1. I rarely play the lottery; that's Scott's thing! However, I'm happy to contribute the #'s, cuz clearly I'm onto something :)
