I'm not 100% sure of all my Holiday plans but I do know that they will involve a lot of eating. Especially eating a lot of goodies. Try as I might, I know that I don't have the will power (or really desire) to avoid eating all the goodies... especially the homemade candies and cookies and pies and fudge and... oh, sorry got lost there for a minute in a candy stupor daydream. Also, with my last scheduled race of the season being this weekend, I have very little to keep me motivated on the running front. So, when Amanda over at Run to the Finish presented the opportunity to sign up for the Holiday Bootie Buster Challenge I jumped right on it. This is apparently the 3rd year of the challenge's existence and it seems that it is growing in popularity each year. As of right now there are 255 people signed up to participate!
The rules are pretty simple:
1 Point per mile (run/walk/snowshoe)
1 Point per 3 miles biked
1 Point per 20 minutes of weight lifting, Pilates, yoga, stretching or abs
1 Point per 15 minutes of another form of cardio (i.e. kick boxing, aerobics elliptical)
1 Per day where you reach a minimum of 7 servings of fruits and veggies
and the benefits listed on the site are great:
A. We had an awesome time! The involvement from everyone and encouragement is amazing.
B. It kept folks from gaining holiday poundage
C. Some seriously good prizes…Sweaty Bands, Once Again Nut Butter, Lara bar, New Balance Shorts, Oiselle Running tank, CEP socks, green teas, yoga bag…to name a few…more details to come.
So, if you haven't signed up yet head over to Run to the Finish and check out all the details and get ready to start earning some points. (Just click on the button above or on my sidebar.) Points start tracking on the 20th, so don't procrastinate.
P.S. Today is last day to enter my giveaway...
