I am heading into the last month of my 2007 Running Goal. I am on track to hit 200k by Christmas day. What I need is a little incentive for my finishing kick… the USC Trojans crushing the UCLA Bruins on December 1st!
I have joined a USC vs. UCLA team running challenge on the Nike+ online community for an extra push in the last month of my personal 2007 running goal. I am supporting the highly favored USC Trojans. The challenge is the team with the most total miles by the big game wins. It kicks off Saturday, November 24th and ends on gameday Saturday, December 1st. Fight on!
I also joined another challenge to help me work off all the great holiday food and festivities. I signed up to run at least 30 miles by Christmas. That is exactly a 1 mile per day average for the next 30 days. Ho! Ho! Ho!
Updated: I removed the Nike+ widget that showed the updated status of the USC vs. UCLA challenge. For some reason, it was messing up the formatting of this post. Also, the UCLA team was kicking the USC’s butt. Going into Saturday, UCLA had run 103.8 miles this week versus USC running 46.3 miles. Fortunately, the results on the gridiron will be very different!
