How to Save on Running Shoes, Gear, and Events

As the season warms up I look forward to lacing up the old running shoes again. I know there are hard-core runners who run through winter but that’s just not something for me (yet).

When I start the season off I try to take it easy and keep my run leisurely.  And yet I’ll still try to do too much and forget that it takes some time to build up my conditioning.  The next couple of days after that inaugural run are always fun [ouch]!

I got to thinking about how simple it is to run.

Here is this wonderful exercise that just about anyone can do.  People pay hundreds in gym memberships and buy expensive machines for home to workout when a simple run may be all they need.

How Can I Pay Off My Student Loan Faster? 3 Programs to Help

There’s no doubt that American college students are in deep–deep in student loan debt, that is

The average college graduate who has student loan debt walks away with roughly $25,500 in debt.  To pay those loans off in 10 years, the graduate will have to pay nearly $300 a month and will pay almost $10,000 in interest over the life of the loan.

New college graduates in this tough job market often must settle for low paying jobs to gain experience before they can move up to a better paying position.  Factor in rent, food, a car, health insurance, and a professional wardrobe, and tacking on a steep student loan payment can be difficult.

While there is no easy way to get out of student loan debt quickly, there are a number of programs that are available to help graduates pay off their debt faster.  These programs won’t erase student loan debt, but they can give graduates a little extra help paying off their loans.
