i’m paying $75 for what?

today the lottery opens for the garry bjorklund half-marathon up in duluth.  it remains open through march 2.  only 4500 runners will be accepted into the race.

i was thinking of signing up until i saw that the race costs $75 plus a processing fee.  for perspective, grandma’s marathon, which is twice the distance, is $85 plus a processing fee and runs the same course as the half-marathon (plus a few, er, 13.1 miles!).  with these prices, the marathon is so much bang for your buck, might as well sign up for that one instead.

also, headphones are no longer banned from the course.
