Running is great exercise. One can do it anywhere and there is no admission fee or membership fee to run. The one cost to running is shoes. This can be a huge cost. A single pair of shoes can cost anywhere from $10 to over $500 depending on where you purchase them. In some cases a $10 pair of shoes can be a real deal such, however there are times when they can cost more than one expects. I recently purchased a pair at a discount store and they wore out in less than a tenth of the time of some of the more expensive pairs that I have bought. You can tell shoes are worn out when there is no padding felt when you run or the fabric starts to wear out or tear. Expensive is not all that though. There have been times when I purchased shoes that were expensive and they wore out in a minute.
Sometimes it is better to check out shoes at a shoe store instead of a department store. The benefit of a shoe store from a financial perspective is that you are more likely to find the shoes that will last for hundreds of miles instead of dozens of miles.
Another benefit of going to a shoe store is that you can find a shoe that matches your feet better which can help you prevent injury. Remember if you can prevent injury that is a huge cost savings and pain savings.
