So I got an email today informing me that registration is now open for the Madison Marathon! If I register before the end of the month it will only be $60.
I am completely sure I want to register for the full marathon, but I don’t know when I can. It just depends on when I will have the money. I have so many lists of things I need to save my money for. Christmas is coming up and I wanted to get a windbreaker for the Berbee Derby, and I also need a new pair of running shoes.
From December through February, the fee goes up to $75, and then after that it keeps going up. I will definitely register before February. I could just wait til after Christmas. Then again, if I am one of the first 6,000 to register, I can get a hat! I love running hats so this appeals to me.
**Edited to add: I just looked up in last year’s results, and there were 4,000 finishers in the half and full marathon… so I will guess I can wait til after Christmas and still get the hat.
