Running Budget

Let’s see if I can figure this out.  

I’m running 200 miles a month.  Average shoe life is 350 miles.  There are 12 months in a year. Isn’t this a leap year? Does that make a difference?  

Carry the two. 

I average three gels per long run, times two long runs per week, 52 weeks in a year. 

Race entry fees.  Travel. Gas prices are expected to hit WHAT!?  

At least I never wear out shorts or socks.  Oh, but they do tend to disappear in the wash or get forgotten in drop bags.  Dang those Thorlo Experias are expensive! 

Gatorade, Hammer supplements, how much do I spend on chocolate milk a month?  Oh and beer, that counts as a recovery drink . . . right?

Multiply by Pi are squared.  Or was it a square Pie times R.  My daughter would know but I’m too embarrassed to ask her to help me figure out a word problem.

80 pounds of ice a month adds up too.  

And what is with my appetite, my cupboard is always bare.  

Equals the square of the hypotenuse.  

I have a headache.

I think I need a sponsor, or maybe a sugar momma.  


  1. I keep telling my wife it's cheaper than a drug problem, but maybe it's not.

    1. I guess that depends on your poison. It's certainly as addictive as drugs.
