My company is doing a contest in order to raise money for a local food bank. That contest consists of teams of 4 measuring steps for 4 weeks. The highest team and person/people get prizes, everyone gets to move more and get exercise and the food bank gets some money to help people out.
Have I ever mentioned that I am extremely competitive?
The main problem with this contest is that the website that tracks it shows all of the information. I can see how many steps other people have taken and how many steps on average each team has taken. That means that if I am not on top – and my team is not on top – I want to push even harder.
After I noticed one guy who is averaging about 25-30k steps per day, I figured there was nothing I could do to stop a cheater. I was warned people cheat during these contests, but I guess I had hoped people wouldn’t. I guess it’s entirely possible that this guy runs 5 or 6 or more miles every single day, but it seems hard to believe. I am on my feet nearly the entire day and I only get between 14-22k steps each day. But if this guy is cheating, it will only push me harder.
