Miles for Money

Well, last year, I ran a LOT of miles......I mean, too many!!! Well, not too many for me, but too many to think about!

So, I saw this idea somewhere (can't remember where!), but I thought it would be great to reward myself for my miles. Every single time I run!

So......I started January 01. 2010.

Every time I run, races, or just runs around the house, I pay myself $1.

Now, I know, I know. $1?! That's not very much. But, when you think about it like this, I logged over 1,200 miles last year.......wowza!!!!!! This could be VERY fun at the end!!!

And, here's the best part.....I glued the top to the jar, so I can't open it!!! (I know myself all to well!)

**I used the Gen Z line from Little Yellow Bicycle, and a recycled jar from some chocolate covered pretzels to make this handy dandy container!

That is genius. I am so doing that! Thanks for the idea! (And for the tip about gluing the lid- ha! I will need to do that too!)

I'm with Virginia - maybe that would be good incentive to Wii fit everyday and get back on the treadmill!!

I agree with Virginia. It's genius and I wish you all the best with it!
