I have noticed that most people put down there runs in Kilometres, 5KM 10KM 20KM and such like.
Now Im a mile type of guy, Is this just me showing my age or does anyone else still clock up the miles rather than the Kms??

Well 10K is one of the most common races distances, and 5 and 10Ks a good intro for beginners before considering stepping up to a half or full marathon, so it makes sense to track progress in Ks. Having said that the spreadsheet I use to log runs gives both Ks and miles in the stats, so I'm familiar with my pace in either.

Its easy to convert one to the other so I dont think it matters really, personally I like miles as I can understand them!

A parsec is a parallax of one arcsecond. The length of a parsec is 30.857 petametres, 3.26156 light-years or 1.9174×1013 miles.

Forget a PB, just finishing in your lifetime would be an achievement.
LOL the same could be said for the race I entered :d



I always think in miles... even during a 5K or 10k, I have little calculations going on in my head...takes my mind off the pain ;)

I'm all metric until I've run 16.1k - then I tell people I've done 10 miles and forget about metric :lol:
