The other night I was scrolling through either Pinterest, Facebook or Bloglovin, or someplace (I don’t really know where I saw it) but I came across a neat little Runbet challenge from Run, Eat, Repeat.
Hmmmmmm…. that sounds interesting!
I’ve really been struggling with motivation lately so I didn’t hesitate to place my $40 bet. There’s something so inspiring about having money in the game, isn’t there?
So here’s where it gets hard. I have to run for 30 minutes at least 4x every week from November 5th to December 2nd. EEEEK!
So I set my alarm this morning to get up and run. Only instead of running I cuddled the cat for an hour. Cuddles always win.
So then I packed my running gear and brought it to work with the plan to run for 30 minutes on my lunch:
I did it! Week 1, run 1 done!
It was pretty hard to motivate myself to leave my desk at noon. It was cool and rainy out, and I REALLY hate running in the rain, but I hate losing money more 😉 So I put my gear on and headed out. Knowing that I didn’t have a distance that I had to make, just a time goal, made the run easier. I didn’t pay attention to pace (as you can see), so I took it slow and enjoyed it. After nearly a month of NOT running it felt nice.
My plan for this bet is to run Monday, Tuesday, take Wednesday off, then run Thursday, Friday.
So… will I win? Well I’m determined not to lose my money, so stay tuned!
Question: Have you ever participated in a Runbet or Dietbet before?
