Running (up a bill) in the New York City Marathon

executive-marathon.pngIf you won a spot in theNYC Marathon, and haven't already started training, I probably don't have to tell you that you need get your ass moving. On November 2, 2008 there will be over 40,000 entrants, of which, approximately 4,098 business professionals will be at the starting line. According to the New York Road Runners Club, that number includes 1,267 analysts, 1,221 bankers, and 288 C.E.O.’s.

Why is that so important:Well ... because corporate runners may have an edge.

What do they do to get that edge? What comes naturally, of course:They invest — in specialized trainers and gear.

If you want that same edge, here's what you can expect to pay:

  • Jerseys:Twenty Coolmax Dri-Fit shirts, plus a custom team jersey: $500
  • Shorts:Twelve pairs of Nike Dri-Fit shorts: $480
  • Training-site membership:$1,800
  • Personal Trainers:$4,050 (based on 18-weeks of training)
Total cost:$8,332

Bottom line:Race day is November 2. That means if you get your gear and start training today, you’ll still be able to get in kick-butt shape by runners-take-your-marks time.
