Since Pavement Runner’s 49ers were defeated by the Giants (btw, he is now rooting for the Giants!!), I had to find another friend to host the challenge with me -> meet Samantha from Running and Cupcakes.
We are runners. Distance runners. So the loser will be running.
But this isn’t just limited to us – we’d love to have more runners join us in this friendly competition!!
Rules of this challenge (same rules as the previous challenge!):
If your team loses, you have to run the point differential in miles. Simple. For example, when the Giants beat the Patriots (for the 2nd time in 4 years), 24-21, Samantha and anyone else who is rooting for the Patriots will have to run 3 miles.
Mile limit: In the occurrence that the Giants blow out the Patriots, we’ve capped the miles to 20 — meaning the most either of us would run is 20 miles. This works for us because we have a solid base and can log the distance. If this mileage is too high for you based on your current training, feel free to cap it at 10 – or whatever distance you feel comfortable!
To be run by: Within a week of the game sounds fair, but outstanding circumstances are understood.
Prove it: Tweet out a photo of your garmin in shame… LOL.
You don’t need to challenge an individual, just make an agreement with yourself to run the difference after you pick a team. If you could care less about stupid football, but are forced to watch the game, at least you’ll have something to root for.
In case you wanted a quick trip down memory lane:
