In fact, I spent a large part of my day yesterday pulling together a potential fall race calendar.
My friends have been suggesting all sorts of races, so I pulled together a master list to see what was feasible and just how much it would cost me.
|Kent Island 10K||9/10||$25|
|Tough Mudder||10/22||Already Paid|
|Marine Corp 10K||10/30||$45|
|Philadelphia Half Marathon||11/19||$100|
|Hot Chocolate 15K||12/3||$65|
Then I totaled up the cost of all the entry fees and cringed. $356, before any of the extra fees. Ouchies. Whoever said running was a cheap sport was so wrong.
The Tough Mudder is the only event I’m already registered for. Nothing is final with the others, though the Philadelphia Half and the Hot Chocolate 15K are definites in my mind, I just haven’t paid the money yet.
I may punt one of the September races. Three weeks of back-to-back racing, even if some of them are just for fun, might be a bit much. But I’m still undecided.
So bloggy people, help me make a decision here. I’m much more inclined to run a race if I know other people are doing it.
Are you doing any of these races?
Have you done any of these races in the past and are they worthwhile investments?
Am I crazy if I decide to do them all?
