Pounds per mile

Have you ever worked out how much it costs to run a mile? As I seem to have plenty of time on my hands in the evenings of late I decided to work out how much a mile costs.

It works out I have not bought any new kit this year apart from running shoes and my favourite shorts. Let's forget about the shorts for the moment and look at the statistics for all my running shoes and since my start of running I have had 13 pairs of shoes and have worked out that the average cost is 13.8 pence per mile.

Little bit of maths tells me that so far this year is 0.138 x 2029.6 miles = £280. 08

I could add up all the sports drinks, food, race entries, travel to and from and much more but my wife will probably read this and ban me from running!!!!!
