You guys, it's cold outside. I know. And when it's cold outside it's harder to get motivated to run.
And Nike knows this too.
So they've created a thing called the Nike+ Chiberia Challenge. Go check it out.
5 teams of runners will be competing against winter (and against each other) to run the farthest the fastest (fastest in terms of days, not speed of running).
It's a pretty sweet challenge.
And I'm captaining one of the five teams. Other teams are captained by the likes of Cindy Kuzma, Runner's World contributing editor and nicest person ever and Maggie Wolff, most popular Chicago running blogger and second nicest person ever. But, really, who cares about them?? You only care about winning this thing right?
So, go check out the info about the challenge, read about the other (lesser) teams and then go join my team at the link below and let's win this thing:
Also, good luck Maggie and Cindy and other teams (kind of).
