Getting Jibby With It – 2013 JIBE JOG CHALLENGE


March 29, 2013

It’s that time of year again. The time when we shed our layers of wool clothing, expose our pasty white appendages, and put some miles on the old lace-ups.

Starting today, the official 2013 Jibe Jog season has begun! We’re ready! Are you?

While the following are incentives for all of us here at Jibe, that doesn’t mean you can’t take on the 2013 Jibe Jog Challenge or create your own running relay!

INCENTIVE #1: Any Jibers who run from the office doorstep (175 W. 200 S.), up the State Street hill, and to the Capitol Building – without stopping – will be rewarded with a $50 running shoe credit. You heard right. We’ll pay the price and barf (if we need to). It’s time to pick out those fancy new running shoes and use them as motivation!

INCENTIVE #2: Any Jibe employee who runs “The Loop” in less than 45 minutes gets $100 cash money and a 2013 Jibe Jog Champion T-shirt (yet to be designed and produced).

THE LOOP: From the office to the Capitol, from the Capitol up Bonneville Boulevard, down City Creek Canyon road through Memory Grove, and back to the office on city streets. Limit one reward per participant.

INCENTIVE #3: At the Jibe Christmas Party (yeah, we’re thinking ahead here), the employee who logs the best time of the season will receive a special Jibitty Award.

We understand that all of you clients, vendors, and dear friends are feeling a little left out right now, which is exactly why you’re also invited to participate. However, you’ll have to come up with your own incentives. Okay, okay—we’ll give you a T-shirt (they’re going to be sweet!) if you complete The Loop in less than 45 minutes!

WARNING: Hill running when you’re pathetically out of shape may result in injury or death. Jibe is not responsible for any such result caused by participation in the 2013 Jibe Jog season. Run at your own risk. We won’t think any less of you if you chicken out.

Are you in? Do you have what it takes? Do you want to have what it takes? See you at 4:30 p.m. in front of the Jibe office building. Can’t make it today? We’ll see you next Friday!

Be sure to stay in The Loop (literally!) and follow our progress. Check out who is in the lead, who’s making a comeback, and check our Pinterest board for some great running tips. Feel free to share your own advice, incentives, or accomplishments by commenting on our Facebook page and hashtagging your tweets with #JibeJog. Now, lace up those shoes!
