Running is not a dependable way to earn a living and take care of a family, but…

What if instead of playing poker or fishing over the weekends you choose to run half- and full marathons?

And what if I told you that if you are a really good runner you can make up to $4,000 a month by winning a race every weekend, depending of course on the season and month of the year?

I've been in a few footraces myself in which the top winner won either $1,000 or $500 and the first ten male and female finishers each received different cash prices.

If running is your thing, you can make some serious pocket money on the side by winning a race or two.
