The price paid to run 26.2 miles....


I am seriously considering running Grandma's full marathon this summer. I finally feel that my body has had the necessary break from racing. My body is, thankfully, responding positively to longer distance runs once again.

That said, I have recently got to thinking about the monetary price of the race. I completely understand why I need to pay the $85 registration fee and I know where my money is going. I believe that spending money to achieve a great physical achievement is awesome! However, part of me still wonders why I need to pay at all to run 26.2 miles. It seems that is a feat that someone should pay me for.....
