Just before I ran my first marathon, a colleague asked me for my lottery money for the week and said, "fingers crossed - if we win this week you wont have to do that race!"
...which completely misses the point, but goes to illustrate that it doesnt matter how rich you are, 26.2 miles is is a hell of a long way no matter what your bank balance says.
Yep, one of those as well!!!
And I like the quote
I'd spend far too much time designing my own trainers on Nike ID and then buy a ton of them...
Buy my own running track and swimming pool...
Get myself a coach
Buy a really swish racing bike and get into tri
Plus enter all my usual races early to secure places and then spend money on adventure races abroad
If I won the lottery, I would have almost exactly the same equipment as I have now, on my national minimum wage job. Once you have found the shoes, clothing and rucksack that work best for you, only very minor improvements can really be attained.
You might see some lavish expenditure on races on the other hand.
I'd buy enough land to create my own woodland runs - say about 10 miles. I'd also need space for the trail bikes and as D2D has just reminded me I also need a swimming pool. I'm thinking Island here.
