Okay, so I just went to the website to register my husband and I online for our first official 5k....to my shock, it was $30.00 per person. I know it is for charity, but I really thought that it was like $10.00-$15.00 to run in a race. Not flipping $30! I called my husband and asked him about it and we discussed the money and if we could swing it. We didn't know it was so expensive :( We can't do it right now, we live very paycheck-to-paycheck at the moment and are on a strict budget following our Dave Ramsey Total Money Makeover Plan. If my idiot self had looked at the fees like a month ago, I would have been able to budget it in....but with one of us having an unexpectedly broke down vehicle...we have to conserve what we can to get that fixed. There will always be other races though, I know. We can always do our own "unofficial 5ks" of course, lol. Maybe the turkey trot in November? This is sad news, but at least I have awesome new running shoes to train with still :) :) I am still going to be a runner!!!!
