Your pace is how long it takes you to cover a mile. (It took me a while to figure it out, too.) Runners tend to care more about their pace than cyclists. (I've never heard a cyclist talk about 4-minute miles; we're more likely to say we averaged 15 mph.)
Love God. Love your neighbor. Change the world. It really is that simple.

I have been sing Endomondo to track my stats while I am out riding and it give a stat for both speed measured in m.p.h. and pace....shouldn't these numbers be the same? Which number should I go by?
F'rinstance....I went out the other evening before dusk for a quick couple of miles, according to Endomondo, I went 2.28 miles in 17'04 with an average speed of 8 m.p.h and a pace of 7.29 min/mile. So I am confused.

Man sacrifices his health in order to make money.
Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health.
And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present;
The result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived. ~The Dalai Lama
