Races, Places & Fees 2016

Last year I had said that it was a big year for me as a runner, but I think its safe to say that 2016 was an even bigger year. After many false attempts I trained and raced a marathon for the first time in 8 years. I also squeaked out a new 13.1 PR (the old one standing for over 6 years) and ran the exact same 5k PR on the same course this year.

I've grown as a runner and am looking forward to what 2017 will bring.
I did a collection of Races, Places & Fees last year and my curiosity got the best of me, so I checked again for this year, after some data mining ( checking old emails and bank statements) I've found 2016's grand total.

I spent more money than I did in 2015 but I also ran a lot more miles. ( and raced more miles) I am hoping to curb my race spending a lot for 2017, but hope to participate in some local cheaper races.

  1. Great post! It makes me curious about my own entry fee totals...definitely less than yours since I haven't done a marathon or any of those big races.
