We’re back with the Super Bowl Edition of a Runner’s Wager. Michelle and I happily bet on the 49ers in the NFC Championship game, so we didn’t have to run any #MilesOfShame last week. Although when we were down 17-0, it was looking pretty bad.
If you are unfamiliar with the rules, here is how it works:
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
Here is who is playing:
Baltimore Ravens vs. San Francisco 49ers
The game will be played in New Orleans on Sunday, February 3
Hey Patriots fans:
I know life gets busy. But there is A LOT of blue on this list and I didn’t see that many #MilesOfShame photos… I’m just sayin’
I live in the Bay Area, which means I support my 49ers. It just so happens that Amanda of MissZippy1.com reigns from the Baltimore area… you know what that means?
SIDE BET: Amanda and I have agreed that the loser will run their miles in the other teams colors. It adds a little fun to the mix. I also want to incorporate video some how, but we are working out the details. If you feel up to the challenge, you can join in on this as well, just make sure to include it in your photos. And she posted a video TALKING TRASH, check it out.
Here is how you enter:
