A way to spend your NYCM refund money! How does this even get on the market?
Of course, as expensive as the medal is, it's cheaper than actually registering for the race was...
MY QUEST TO QUALIFY NOT JUST FOR THE OLYMPIC TRIALS BUT FOR THE 2016 OLYMPICS IN THE MARATHON (to do this I will need to halve my marathon time)
Geesh! Is that even the real thing? Someone who works at NYRR would have to be the one selling it, right?ReplyDelete
I think that they may have given registered runners the option of picking up their medals?Delete
This is correct - registered runners were given the opportunity to pick theirs up. I didn't, because I illogically believe it would be bad karma even if I just sent it to Metals 4 Mettle or something like that. But I know of one blogger who picked hers up.Delete
Since the race was canceled, I don't think karma would have been an issue (then again, it wasn't my first). That said, selling it on ebay... I'm not sure how I feel about that. The same person has sold medals before, though, so I guess good on her if she can make a profit off of it!Delete
I think I'm more flabbergasted that it costs > 250 clams to register for NYCM. This race was on my someday list, but the price is demotivating.ReplyDelete
when i registered for Boston (as an invitational entry - trust me I am nowhere CLOSE to qualifying) I coughed up $125 and even that was steep but whoa - over 250 is nutballs.
I got my medal! And I will gladly sell it for $250...to any takers out there ;-)ReplyDelete
I hate people.ReplyDelete
It's important that this medal has lived in a smoke-and pet-free homeReplyDelete
