Sept. 2010 distance challenge now up for the MetaFilter group at Runner+. Please join in! [more inside]
The MetaFilter May Cycling Challenge is on! Also begining May 1st, the 10km Streak competition. (no association with nude bicycle riding implied or intended) [more inside]
MetaFilter cycling is starting to ramp up due to good weather, which has me wondering. Some plans for formal challenge(s) this summer would be good. And, head over to WeEndure and start entering your rides! [more inside]
It's been a while since our last post, so I thought I'd remind folks about the Metafilter RUNNER+ group. Everybody's welcome to join in the challenges, and you don't have to have the Nike+iPod kit anymore. The February Challenge was won by Slarty Bartfast, who racked up more than 150km! I've just launched a new challenge for March/April. Get running! [more inside]
MeFiTri: Are you a female MeFite planning on doing a Danskin Triathlon? Would you like to try it (you can do it!) Are there other triathletes on MeFi? I'm wondering about the potential for a training group similar to the running and cycling gangs. [more inside]
January 2008 Distance/Calorie Challenges now up! [more inside]
Only 3 days left in the August cycling challenge. Wolfdog still leads JeffL, but an 85 mile lead isn't very big the way those guys are riding.
A MeFi bicycling challenge was mentioned here and if it was mentioned in other places as well, I apologize-- I couldn't find it. So, who is up for a bicycling challenge similar to what those wacky runners have going on? I am pretty sure we can use a website such as We Endure or similar to start a group and track our progress. Any takers?
The current MeFi running challenge is in its final days. I'll post the final results in a couple of days. I don't want to jinx it, but I might actually win this one...(Previous challenges : 1.0., 2.0.,3.0.,3.1.) We're already gearing up for the July distance challenge. I've sent a new invite to the current participants. If you've got the nike+ sports kit for the ipod nano and want to measure yourself against the dreaded metathletes, post your nike+ screenname in this thread, and I'll send you an invite to the challenge.
