Sadly, life has been too insane to have the time to blog. GASP! I know, I know. And while I could catch up with all things compartment syndrome, being flexible with spring running plans, and looking forward to a mommy/Caitlyn vacation, there are FAR more important things to discuss.
THE PATRIOTS ARE GOING TO THE SUPERBOWL!!!!
I love football. No, really. I have an irrational love of the sport, more so than any other (televised/mainstream) professional sport. So this is a big deal in my world. Laugh if you may.
A couple bloggy friends conjured up a football challenge, and I was the first person to sign up. Especially since we're playing the Giants, and loathe all New York sports. Loathe.
I copied the below pretty much verbatim from Samantha's blog, so everyone's clear on how this will go down.
We are runners. Distance runners. So the loser will be running.
Rules of this challenge:
If your team loses, you have to run the point differential in miles. Simple. For example, when the Patriots being the Giants (because payback's a bitch *ahem redemption*) 24-2, Michele and anyone else rooting for the Giants will have to run 20 miles. (Here's where you're thankful you're a Patriots fan).
Mile limit: When
In the event that the Patriots blow out the Giants, we've capped the miles to 20 - meaning the most anyone would run is 20 miles. This works for some of us because we have a solid base and can log the distance. If the mileage is too high for you based on your current training, feel free to cap it at 10 miles - or whatever works for you!
Your miles must be logged within a week of the game, unless you can't. Then run them whenever. This is supposed to be FUN!
Now prove it - Tweet out a photo of your Garmin in shame. Not on Twitter? Put it on your blog, Facebook, or just send it out to all your beloved Giants fans, admitting the shame.
And for all of you poor souls out there who don't like football (God it hurt to even type those words), but are being forced to watch the game, now you have a real reason to root for
the Patriots a team.
