Anyone else have any issues uploading a treadmill run? I've had a couple times where I load it all it says its submitted and I cone back on and it's gone. Yesterday it happened and I hadn't saved the pictures. Luckily I had time and it was warm enough to run outside for the 2.8 miles. Annoying though

Wanted to get day 1 and day 2 done today and yesterday so I could hit the 3 miles outside tomorrow. It originally said a high of 34 degrees for wednesday but now it says 30. Hopefully it doesn't go lower. I want a nice warm outside run lol

I thought about trying to do my last run on the ferry, but it would definitely get flagged as suspicious. This was my pace WALKING one lap on the deck. Guess that ferry was moving pretty fast!

I live in Ohio so the weather here is very unpredictable, could be -20 and 3 feet of snow, could be like today and 60 degrees!! I forgot how much I love running in warmer weather- so much better than the dread mill 😂

Does it notify us when we are ineligible? I was sick the last half of last week and missed 2 runs. Wondering if I should sign up for a different RunBet since I should be ineligible?
