How is the reward figured? With 88 people completing the bet and 30 not, I thought the reward should be more than $5 and some change even with Waybetter keeping 25%

I live in the country. Love running out here but really hard when everyone is burning their fields! I finished though! Woohoo! Congrats everyone!

That's it complete. Got me out running four times a week even sometimes when I couldn't be bothered. Well done to all that completed this challenge.

Yet another way to get a few bucks a year while keeping to our fitness habits: tinyurl.com/ycw9tdoc Its called achievement, it won't get you rich but, on the other hand, you really don't have to do anything different from what you're doing. Just sign up and you can easily get $10 every 2 or 3 months.
