Though I did discover something quite interesting. In my limited reasearch, I seem to be finding that there are quite a number of races that are quite a bit cheaper than I can find them here in Canada (locally anyway).
The average cost for a 10K here is $30-$50. Half marathons run about $60-80+ and marathons seems to be $70-90+. Of course there are races a bit above and below these amounts and these are in general the early registration fees.
I found a number of races just across the line into Washington state in the range of $15-25 for a 10K, $30-50 for a half marathon and $40-60 for a full marathon. That's quite the difference when you add up numerous races and having two runners in the family.
I have been a bit of a slug this week. Lots on my plate and am still fighting that bug a bit. Nowadays, when I get sick, I don't seem to get it full blast (knock on wood). But it seems to linger and I can feel my body fighting it. If I don't slow down and let it fight, it will hit me. I'm pushing the limits right now and have to put on the brakes.
So this weekend my plan are lots of rest, relaxation and activity. I plan to get in some good runs and some biking as well. Plus as much sleep as I can manage.
I also plan to break out the running skirt and give it another shot.
Hope everyone has a great weekend. It's a long weekend here, Victoria Day, in celebration of Queen Victoria's birthday. I'm hoping for lots of sunshine and outdoor activity!!!!
