I like to spend money (I work hard for my money) but I also like to save money. As you know right now I am saving money to buy a house and also for retirement. <<My goal is to retire way before I am “supposed” to. 😀 Anyway, here are some ways that I’ve been able to save money on running year/races.
💰 Sign up early for races. I haven’t signed up for a race in about 2 years. But I do remember that when I signed up for the Publix Atlanta Half Marathon, I did so months in advance and ended up paying only $50.
💰 Buy gear on Amazon, Zappos, or Running Warehouse. I bought my Garmin 235 for only $100 from Amazon! I’ve also used a discount code from a running club when buying from Running Warehouse.
💰Sign up to be on company email lists to receive discount codes. I’ve received codes from Liquid I.V. and Headsweats. I recently received a code for 28% off from Liquid I.V. It is my new favorite product and you bet I stocked up.
💰Shop during popular times of the year. I’ve found some great deals during Black Friday and also after Christmas.
