I'm really curious, how do you pick your races?
I came up with a nice long list of potential races at the beginning of the year and then ADP and I talked about it. We are living on one income, so instead of doing what I wanted and signing up for every single one we settled on a race budget. I have a set dollar amount that I can spend on races this year. So, do I do some big races or a lot of little races (big and little are in terms of $$, not distance)?
My race budget is almost gone and there are so many races left this fall I want to do. Plus, there are some races that both ADP and I want to run which will involve hiring a sitter for the kids. Two race entries plus a sitter will blow the budget out of the water (sitters are not cheap and we have no family near by). Thankfully, the races I want to do in the fall usually do not sell out so I can wait until the last minute to register.
How do you figure out what races you are going to run??
