Have you ever put off registering for a race just a little too long?
That happened to me this year.
But for some reason, I just didn’t sign up.
There were a lot of reasons. First, I had no idea how quickly I would bounce back from my first half marathon – or if I would even want to do another one!
But as you all know by now, that answer is clearly YES – I definitely want to do another one.
Second, the price always scared me off for some reason. Not that it was that expensive when I first started looking at the race. But the more I put it off, the more expensive it became.
But then again, look at those medals! Meghann and I saw them in person at the RnR Expo and wow are they impressive. Speaking of the Expo, they had a deal for $20 off the price which would have made it only $75. But again I chickened out. Grr. (I did sign up to win a free entry, but I haven’t heard anything back yet so I’m guessing that I didn’t win it. Boo.)
And then they posted these photos of their awesome race bibs on their Facebook page. How cool are these things?? Right down to the QR code that you can scan to check out your finishing time!
Everything about this races appears to be so well done – from the medals, to the t-shirts, even down to the race bibs!
But now we are less than a month away and sadly, I just can’t afford the $95 entry fee at this stage of the game. But Sarasota Half Marathon, if you’re reading, please feel free to send a comp entry my way!
And don’t worry – I won’t be missing out on this one next year!
If you’re currently contemplating signing up for a race, but haven’t convinced yourself to commit yet, take my advice. Sign up TODAY. Don’t wait like I did.
Because if you do, I reserve the right to come back and say, “I told you so.”
Have you ever missed a race because you put off registering too long?
