I’M IN: SUPERBOWL CHALLENGE

I came across the Superbowl Challenge on Runner’s World this morning. NYC Running Mama is hosting this for people who are football and running fanatics. The idea behind it is simple [pulled from NYC Running Mama's site]:

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.

 

Sound fun? Sign up HERE. I picked the Giants… I really wish the Packers were in it this year, but I guess I’ll just have to root for the other NFC team.

At least he was given MVP like he deserved (source)

 

Now to figure out the menu. We will be having 7 Layer Dip and create-your-own subs, but now I’m trying to find a good cookie recipe to top it off. Heading over to Corrie Anne’s because I know she has a ton…

 

Will you be joining the Superbowl Challenge? Who are you rooting for?
