How much is too much?

How much is too much to pay for a sports bra? I am not a regular jogger but am making a go of it lately as Andrew and I are signed up to run in the Peachtree Road Race (doom!! doom!!!) this July 4th. So, in the tradition of being over prepared and spending too much money: I've got some nice New Balance shoes I bought a few months back, great running shorts I bought for last year's Peachtree and have recently acquired an MP3 player. But I am still lacking in the sports bra department.
I'm no Anna Nicole Smith or anything but I am fairly busty (**blush**) and need a bra that will love and support me. In preparation for last year's race I bought a fairly expensive bra off RoadRunner Sports.com, I think it cost about $35 bucks with a discount. The bra was okay but didn't live up to the high standard I had set for it, it was classified as "Maximum Support" but I would give it a "Marginal" at best. But....I am enchanted by the Nike Inner Actives Full Bust Bra, which sells for $44.99. It sure looks nice. And supportive too. But $50 for a sports bra? It's not much more than I spend last year. But part of me keeps saying "$50 for a stinkin' bra?!?!" Am I being cheap at the exspense of my poor chest?
Sports bra/financial advice would be greatly appreciated.......
