Dear visitor, welcome to my blog about running, gadgets, fun stuff, etc. I am a fun-runner, who is more focused on running/cycling/hiking at beautiful landscapes with a good company, than beating my PB for a given distance. I created this blog to post about stuff that I am often asked about, so that I can just send the link and run instead 😂 Posts are few and far between, and usually long. If this is your cup of tea, then enjoy the content.
This page keeps track of my most expensive purchases (typically gadgets) and tracks their total usage, and thus their normalized cost. The basic idea was explained in this post. Shoes are omitted, as their cost and total lifetime usage is well known, not as interesting, and usually comes down to 6 ¢/km or 10 ¢/mi.
Quick note: often only a subset of the total usage is considered here, as other type of activities, or the same type of activities by others are neglected.
