Week 2of my office step challenge is under way, and my team is in 3rd place. Third place! Ugh. I’ve really stepped up my mileage this week, running nearly 5 miles each day — the prize is money toward a fitbit and you know I need a new one! I’m hoping my team members are taking it as seriously as I am ..
This week’s running highlight:
A drizzly run with FW on Sunday, followed by watching the NYC marathon. As much as stroller runs are hard, it’s a nice tradition with FW if it’s not too cold out (the weather turned after the weekend and we had a cold rest of the week!). And sometimes he even falls asleep 🙂
And watching the marathon was great. I loved watching Meb and holy cow Shalane!! It was definitely emotional.
Also, this was my highest mileage week in months!! Guess that’s what being in a step challenge will do for you.
Some questions for you:
- Do you have a Fitbit? If not, what do you have?
- Did you watch the marathon?
Linking up with My No-Guilt Life, Marcia’s Healthy Slice, and MCM Mama Runs!

Those are the cutest boots your little guy has on. I have the Garmin 235 and really like it. I hope the rest of your team steps it up.
I have the Garmin 630. It just got it in Aug for my birthday, and I’m so glad I did. I thought I was getting a running watch but was pleasantly surprised that it is also an activity tracker. I wear it all the time now and love how it motivates me to get up and move every hour (when I don’t ignore it).
Good luck with your step challenge. Hope your teammates step it up. 😀
Nice job on the mileage! I have the Garmin 220, but it’s not a step counter. I’ve never really been into counting – I move a lot most days, so I just don’t worry about it.
