Just because it’s cold out doesn’t mean you have to retire your running shoes for the season. Nike is challenging all athletes to #chooseyourwinter and the Nike+ Chiberia Challenge will kept tabs on your commitment during the holiday season. And there are sweet prizes.

And you can [virtually] run with me! It’ll be fun, I promise. I’m a Fun Guy Gal.
