Giving! This gift is all about those of us who have planned our race schedules and our loved ones know when our races are. The cost of entering some races can defiantly put a damper on registering, and by signing up a special someone for a race that you know they were looking into can motivate them and also help save them money. I would only do this though if you know they were going to run a certain race. If they usually run 5ks, don’t take Christmas as a time to sign them up for a marathon in two months. That might be a little overwhelming!
You can sign up for most races on Active,or go to any given races specific website to sign them up. The costs for races can range from $20-$150 dollars. Another idea is that many bigger races have special dinners, or events that also cost money. The dinners are usually carb loading dinners before the race at a local pasta place. You can also purchase tickets for these online if you know your runner has already signed up for the race and they were interested in doing something like that.
Nothing too exciting besides that to report back to you, I’m going for a run tonight again and I am excited about this weekend because we are going out to Palm Springs for my cousins 30th birthday! I know it will be a nice scenery change to run out there. My back has been super stiff since the 5k so I’m trying to take it easy and not run too much so I can get in a really long run this weekend.
