  1. Eeek that is terrifying adding up marathon expenses! Haha. I was just talking with friends about this – how run can be very cheap, but can also be so easy to spend money on. It’s interesting to see where this runner spent this money! I really enjoyed the RW article on finishing 2nd to last. Amazing she was not easily discouraged but had a positive approach to the race!
