I started running because it was a cheap hobby.
Cheap MY EYE.
This year I have decided that I'm going to keep track of every cent I spend that is running related: races, supplements, clothing, shoes, gear, you name it. I have a bank account that is set up for running. I try to save 25 cents for every mile I run (which equals about $25-$30 a month). I'm pretty sure this barely pays for my shoes.
Since we are, indeed, "starving college students," I have decided that I'm going to tally up just how "cheap" this little hobby of mine is.
So far the bill is fairly small:
Physical Therapist, 1/9- $50.00
Chinese Dragon Run 1/11- $13.25
But I know it is destined to grow.
I did pay for 2 big races last year that I am going to include for this year. They are the Ogden Marathon ($85.00) and the Wasatch Back ($105).
That brings my running total for 2011 up to:
Yowza!!!!!!!!! Don't tell my husband.
