For those of you that are like, "What is she talking about?" Here's the summary: You run miles. You pay yourself for every mile run (I pay myself 50 cents per mile - but you can adjust for yourself) and you put it a separate savings account just for this. You pay yourself bonuses for things like a PR, seeing a fox on your run, getting beeped at, etc...whatever fun thing you can think of to "earn" extra loot. You use all of the money to pay for races, running gear, whatever you deem worthy of your runner's cash. Got it?
Let me start by saying, a year goes way too fast! I feel like I was just coming up with this idea on one of my long runs, and here I am reflecting on it. I ended up with enough money in the account to pay for all of these fun things!
- My entry fee into the 117th Boston Marathon
- My 4 day trip (flight and hotel) to Boston for the marathon
- Some swag from the marathon (a jacket, so far!)
- Maybe most importantly, my dog's annual trip to the vet ($350 - what?! She only weighs 12 pounds!)
