If I could, I would do a half marathon or triathlon every month.
The main problem is the race fees.
San Jose half: $75
RunSF half: $70
Cal International Marathon: $75
Lake of the Pines triathlon: $50
Santa Cruz half: $55
And of course, one of our all-time favorites--the Nike Women's in San Francisco. This year's fees? Full marathon: $110. Half marathon: $95.
For this reason, I'm somewhat picky about how many races I do. I can easily spend $500 on race fees in any given year. And that doesn't even include the other running expenses--shoes, clothes, gu, etc.
Which got me thinking. Wow--$500 is a pretty big chunk of money. But it's all relative, right? Let's take golf for example.
Weekend golf rates:
San Juan Oaks: $85
Coyote Hills: $102
Pebble Beach: $495
So I say, hey--if this is worth $495...
This is certainly worth $110...
Can I get an amen?
