One of my goofy ideas for the Run Crew was to throw in doofy little challenges here and there, along the lines of WILL RUN FOR _________.
As the fall wears on, I continue to wear more reflective things and run a few more miles under the street lights, all the while thinking about how I can’t wait to have my morning coffee when I’m finished.
So here’s the deal. To enter the challenge, there are three painless steps to complete:
- Comment down below on this thread. No need for a novel, just throw an emoji down there or something, so I know you’ve opted in.
- Enter the general November 10K challenge on Strava. Here’s where the filtered leaderboard is going to live, so we can see some actual results.
- Run a 10K at some point in the month of November.
Who wins? There will be TWO wins!
Whoever knocks out the fastest 6.23mi of all will win a $20 gift card to Starbucks/Tim Hortons/Dunkin (or wherever you get your coffee that I can purchase a gift card online), your choice.
I’m not the fastest in the bunch, and I don’t want people to be discouraged if the same fast human (it’s a small group) just wins everything all the time, so there’s also going to be a Wild Card winner. Of all the people who complete the 10K challenge (except the timed winner), a name will be drawn at random to win another $10.
I know it’s not much, but I can’t be the only one jonesing for a warm beverage after these cool weather runs! As delicious as they are, post-race beers make my fingers turn white. BRRRRR!
Disclaimer: this is NOT a Sbux, Dunkin or Timmy's coffee, but it was photogenic AF - so let's roll with it.
