New year, new resolutions and in little dirt dawg's words, "me have idea".

There is no need to rehash the obvious physical and emotional benefits of running, but rather with the beginning of the new year I thought it might be fun to figure out what the cost of running is in terms of money. This idea started to formulate in my mind the last couple of days and I had to take it out on the road to see if it had a good sticky factor. Was it something tangible and worth pursuing? I thought so.

So my plan is simple. I will start keeping track of all running related expenses(GU, shoes, gear, race fees, etc) and then divide it by the miles I have run to figure out The Cost Of Running.

Better get running.
