During the playoffs, my friends Michele at NYCRunningMama and Brian from PavementRunner came up with the brilliant idea of hosting “miles of shame” contests for runners with teams in the NFL playoffs. Now, many of you are familiar with how things turned out–we’ve got ourselves a Harbowl, meaning that PavementRunner’s beloved 49ers are going up against my Ravens in the big dance. As a result, PavementRunner and I naturally had to carry on the miles of shame one last round.
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.
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.
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
