Thank you to Lena at The Beginners Runner for passing along this great idea! A running tip jar is a great way to motivate and reward you for getting those training miles in. For every mile I ran, I put a dollar in the jar. It's not a ton at a time (so you won't break the bank), but it does add up at the end. I started my jar at about 14 weeks before the Disneyland Half Marathon and it's time to open it and count it out!
(There are 20s in there, but I didn't run 20 miles in one shot. At different points, I had to swap out the singles- kinda hard to explain to people why you want 50 bucks in ones on a regular basis without getting the side eye.)
My final count came out to $207!
Can't wait for the expo!!! :)
