Running: The "cheap" sport

Shoes: 3 pair at $100 a pop

100 mile race entry fee: ~$165

Gus/food/electrolytes for training: Easily over $500

Hotel for pacer/crew/myself: $200

Rental SUV so crew can access aid stations: $50/day

This is just off the top of my head. I don't want to add up the actuals. Oh:

Therapy to figure out why I do this: $60/session

Yeah, it adds up quick, doesn't it? I have to say though, $165 is actually pretty cheap for a 100 miler. Sad but true.
