Today’s post is sponsored by WeCompete! I’m excited to share this fitness game with you. It adds a whole new level of fun and motivation to our runs! I’ve got an awesome offer from WeCompete today too at the end of the post!
I don’t know about you but during this time of year when I don’t have any races on my schedule and the temperatures are dropping at home, I ESPECIALLY need some extra motivation to keep moving. Having something that can give me some needed excitement and get me out the door and move is especially nice. Being able to have other people to do a challenge with (ask my mom, we’ve done a lot of different challenges together in so many different areas of life) keeps me working hard towards a goal. That is why I’m so excited about WeCompete! This is something that can keep all of us motivated and excited to keep moving.
PS I’ve always wanted a running picture with the DIXIE mountain in the background after seeing a bunch of people do this. Thank you Andrew for helping me finally get one:)
WeCompete is a fitness game for iOS that uses your iPhone’s pedometer, an Apple Watch, or a Jawbone fitness tracker!! I love having a way that you can compete in step and distance challenges with the people in your life or with people from around the world.
A fun way to challenge your friends/family to stay active with you—> yes, please. The challenges that you create with WeCompete allow everyone to compete no matter what your age is or your fitness level. It is an awesome way to connect with others that want to MOVE too… which we all do!
Using WeCompete as a way to involve my friends and family (and ALL of you) in a fitness challenge makes me beyond excited.
This is how WeCompete works—> You create a challenge and customize it to your goals. You can also join a public challenge that works for you and your personal goals! After you create a challenge you then invite your friends to join you or you can also make your challenge open so that anyone can join! The fun part comes then with working towards winning or accomplishing the daily step goal or reaching the distance in a challenge. Then it is time to collect your prize!!! Those near the top of the leaderboard or the people that hit their daily or weekly goals earn WeCompete coins and bragging rights over your friends/family/other people competing.
PS You get to use fun power-ups called Pains & Gains to get a step up on the competition and an extra boost. You can choose whether or not you want to use Pains & Gains when you are making the challenge too! The Pains & Gains add a little more fun and variety to your challenge if you do want to use them!
Andrew and I currently have our own challenge together that is about to start which is good for us because we thrive on a little competition. Competitions most definitely motivate me to work harder!
Game on Andrew. A lot is on the line here with this;)
I personally will be using my iPhone’s pedometer to track my steps/distance for my challenges. I always have my phone with me no matter what during a run for safety reasons and I can take pictures. I just slip my phone into my fuel band around my hips. I forget it is even there it is so comfortable. Andrew uses an armband to put his phone in while he runs to track his steps/distance for the challenges.
PS I really think we just all need to move down to St. George during the winter to run… I like snow during the holidays but then I very quickly get over it.
I love the idea that you can create your own fitness challenges with WeCompete and have control over when and how YOU compete. WeCompete is an awesome way to work together with your friends and family to stay accountable to your fitness goals. I think it would be really fun if we all did one together each month of the year? Who is IN? If you need some inspiration or an extra push then most definitely give WeCompete a try!
Invite your friends and family and help motivate each other to keep on moving!
Okay, just one more in my sweat band, you are welcome;) Obviously Beretta was excited about it.

Let’s do this together and stay active while the weather is telling us to slow down and hibernate… Runners don’t hibernate.
Since Thanksgiving is just around the corner I would love to hear what your top two favorite Thanksgiving foods are!! Any that you really do not like?
Do you normally run with your phone? Where do you store it while you run? Or do you hold it?
-I used to always hold it while I ran (which resulted in me cracking the screen one time because I fell while running ha). Now I just store it in a fuel belt or my jacket pocket if it is cold enough to wear a jacket/vest.
Do you remember running with a portable cassette tape or CD player many years ago?
-Yes, I do. I used my sister’s mixed tapes for all of my runs and listened to Celine Dion like it was my job.
Who is going to join this challenge?! Who wants to do a monthly challenge together?
