A long overdue post from the end of December...
I really did have good intentions - signed up for the Winter Blast virtual race series to do a 5K, 10K, 10 miler, and a half marathon in between December 19 and 31. But with over 12 inches of rain, the 2nd wettest December on record in these parts, it simply was not meant to be. It was just a crazy amount of rain. I did feel lucky to get a 5K and a 10K in though.
Back in August I got a Fitbit to track daily mileage. It works great. One of the things that I noticed about it after signing up, from time to time you earn badges for various things like Daily Steps, Daily Climb, Lifetime Climb, and Lifetime Distance. They are quite creative with some of their badges:
I'm not sure that this type of thing actually motivates me, but I must admit, it's kind of fun getting the badges.
