First Place! If Only For A Moment…

By Laura Moncur @ 5:00 am — Filed under:

A couple of days ago, I finally made it to first place on my Level 3 Nike Challenge. I looked at the mileage I would need to get to first place and then did an extra mile.

First Place! If only for a moment...

Sometimes you can do 10 miles and feel like a failure, but other times you can do 7.25 miles and feel like a hero!

If you haven’t tried the Nike Challenges, it’s worth the cost of the Nike+ to get going. There is NO WAY that I would have run 7.25 miles in one day during the Christmas season. I might not have even run 7.25 miles in a week. I have never been more motivated to get my miles done than since I’ve joined these challenges.

If you don’t have a Nike +, take the time to find someone in your area who runs at about the same level as you do and challenge them. It will boost your motivation like you’ve never experienced before.

    All of your writing about Nike+ makes me wish I could still run. Sounds like a great motivator.

    This limerick I read today reminded me of your “First Place!” post 🙂
