Some Superbowl Fun – Miles of Shame

Who are you rooting for?  For me, its a choice between the Ravens (a hometown team) and the 49ers from one of my favorite cities!

So I’m nominally more excited about this year’s superbowl than I would have been if it was Patriots/Cowboys. Nominally. I had to look up to confirm who was playing earlier this week.

But I’m up for fun activities that get me moving especially in the cold winter time!  So I was excited when I learned from Miss Zippy about the Miles of Shame Superbowl Style that’s going on!

Are you in?!

Here are the rules for those who want to play along:

Pick a team. If your team loses, you have to run the point differential in miles.

49ers beat the Ravens 34-28. Loser would have to run 6 miles.
Ravens beat the 49ers 21-17. Loser would have to run 4 miles.

Mile Limit:
We know that not everyone can go out and run a bunch of miles in the case of a blowout, but it does HAVE to be challenge. We’ve limited the MAX miles to be 20. If that many miles still seems too high, we still want you to be part of it and you can cap your “bet” at 10.

To be run by:
Miles must be run within a week (Sunday, 2/10). It can be broken up into multiple runs, but this is meant to be a challenge so try not to break it up into more then 2 separate runs.

Prove it:
Loser has to tweet out (or Instagarm) an AFTER photo with their Garmin or treadmill (or whatever you use to track) and tag it with #MilesOfShame

So are you in? Who are you betting on? 

I’m going for the Ravens!  Go team!

    This looks like a great, fun challenge that will add some vested interest to tomorrow’s game for me! I’m rooting for the 49ers (long story) and I will have to cap my bet at 10 since I have only run a grand total of 2 miles in the last month…
