    Unfortunately, drinking is much easier than running. :?

    Of course, the reality is that the average citizen would fill more leisure opportunity with more quality couch-potato time!

    They may, unfortunately, instead have to fill that time with that 2nd job at McDonalds.

    I'm wondering how many meets (both domestic and international) are suddenly going to be real casualties because of a massive drying up of sponsorship money in these trying times.
    We were just discussing that at my club's board meeting last night (in relation to road races). The feeling was that most events would have a harder time getting sponsorships, but that participation should continue to increase, as running is an inexpensive way to relieve stress.
    My guess is that participation will decrease, as adult recreational sports require leisure time and/or disposable income.
    I think it will increase because unemployed people have a lot of leisure time, and both employed and unemployed people will substitute more expensive hobbies (skiing, traveling, etc) with less expensive ones.

    (11,00 SEK (!) from Stockholm to London Stansted yesterday; 499,00 SEK from Stockholm to Göteborg).

    Running a quick plug-in to the United Airlines site for cheapest 14-day fair currently available. From JFK to Eugene, $310. From JFK to San Francisco, $319. From San Francisco to Eugene, $279.

    You explain airline pricing to me!

    it'll be interesting to see if any marathon, big or little loses a sponsor, or whether the entry fees just get bigger...


    an aside note, do people realize how much it costs to get to eugene from the east coast...

    with the monopolization of national events there ad infinitum, cost will drive some east coasters to not go again....

    I think it is better to invest in the product rather than dry up with the times.

    One thing the Paris meet has going for it, at least, is that they can show sponsors monster attendance figures. (good luck for U.S. meets on that score)
