After a few followups to my last blog, I thought I would itemize for everyone what a typical speedskater pays out of pocket to pursue their dream. If it weren’t for sponsors, friends and family it would be impossible to pursue our dream of turning left.
Food-$300 (that is without trying to eat the latest greatest organic stuff)
Gas-$350 (PC to SLC 5x a week adds up)
Trip to Qualifier Meets in MKE-$1000
Random Equipment- ~$400
