Expenses

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.

Monthly Expenses:

Rent-$550
Food-$300 (that is without trying to eat the latest greatest organic stuff)
Gas-$350 (PC to SLC 5x a week adds up)
Coaching- $300

Yearly Expenses:

Boots-$1200
Blades-$795
Trip to Qualifier Meets in MKE-$1000
Random Equipment- ~$400
