Every Marathon Runner Has a Story – And So Does Your Data. At least once a year I sit down to watch one of the many televised marathons that happen in cities all around the world.

Now, I don’t watch the race to see who wins. That’s irrelevant. What I want is the stories. I want to see the interviews with the charity runners and hear the story of how they got here. And of course, every story is different.
