Marathon Time Calculator

Today a podcast I frequent (Chicks on the Right) discussed marathon runners.  Inspired by their discussion of times, I decided to put together a small Excel workbook to do the calculations.  The instructions are on the first worksheet.  Briefly, you enter the minutes and hours finishing time. The workbook converts minutes and hours to standard h:mm format, then calculates a number of other measures, including the ever popular minutes per mile.  The marathon distance is entered in miles and yards.  I suppose you could use this for any distance. Be my guest.
