Every year I start with the same New Years resolution, get fit. Usually it’s a goal that has been proceeded by 2 weeks of indulging in holiday festivities and we all know that means food, food and more food.

By the time the New Year swings around I feel like any positive motivation I had about my fitness and health is hiding behind a voice that says “need to eat more pie”. It’s a slippery slope.

This situation may sound familiar, but don´t worry because we have found a solution (and it´s not a diet).

On the 16th of January AEDT (Updated) we are going to run an

Envato Staff Vs Community Nike+ competition.

We’ll go head to head against each other and all odds ( the festive season indulgence) for one month. On the 16th of Feburary (Updated) the team with the longest combined distance will be celebrated and the team members who ran/walked the longest distance will win a prize each!

How Can I Get Involved?

Set up the Nike + App on your phone (iPhone or Android) and walk or run as many miles (or kilometres) as you can.

Make sure you fill out this form with your Nike+ username so we can add you to the Envato challenge.

Keep us up to date in this thread, encourage your team mates and do what you must to win (physical harm against the opposite team is obviously cheating)!

What exercise is included?

To keep it fair we are going to stick to running and walking. Don’t even think about tracking your bike rides!

Excuses will include:

“But it’s winter where I live!”

“I don’t like running or walking”

“I’m lazy”

Here’s what we say to excuses – if you want to get fit and start the year with a bang, this competition is a great way to motivate yourself and your fellow Community members.

Unless you’ve got an injury, do your best to get involved. We absolutely promise you’ll feel better for it. On that note, please make sure you look after yourself and wear appropriate gear (we don’t want any forum posts about frostbite)!

As we said, the competition starts of the 16th of January 2014 (Updated), this is just a heads up so you can sign up to the Nike+ App, fill out this form with your username and get mentally prepared!

Get ready Community, the Staff are already in training!

EDIT: Don’t forget to add Envato as a friend on Nike+ and make sure your profile is public so you can get involved!

That’s a great move, Carmen!!
In fact, we both have same resolution but unfortunately I will be in opposite team.

I’m in and will run for Community members.
