My wife has challenged me to a triathlon of sorts tomorrow. The race starts by running 1 mile then going to the basketball court and making 50 shots, then going to the pool and swimming 3 laps.
For the first event the steaks are pretty high. The winner gets to choose all restaurant and chooses what the loser will eat at the restaurant for 1 month or until the loser looses 10 lbs. We will be doing this once a month.
Anyone that knows me knows I am a
fierce competitor degenerate gambler and I love to step up the stakes so I quickly offered some additional rules.
If someone should win 2 consecutive triathlon events the winner gets to choose what side of the bed they get to sleep on (this counts and home and vacation) for 6 months.
If someone should win 5 consecutive triathlon events the winner gets naming rights to our next child (can you say jeremy jr).
If someone should win 10 consecutive triathlon events the winner gets to choose where we will be buried.
Now my wife has not agreed to the 3 extra things I threw out. I think she is chicken but whatever. I will be victorious tomorrow.

That’s a great bet! You should do it every week.
lol…good luck shoe…I say you name the next child Luke 🙂
You haven’t settled who sleeps on which side of the bed yet? Why is that?
Lot of risks there. heh How about the loser has to jog behind the other person who’s driving family vehicle, with a donut hanging out the window? Around the block of course. 🙂
Man, those stakes get pretty high by the end. If you lose play dumb and tell her you thought she meant “steaks”.
Sounds like a nice competition. Are either of you good at b-ball?
ohh we have settled… basically its whatever she wants =)
Dont beat her dude. You will pay for it longer than a month!
I voted no.. so prove me wrong! It seems totally sweet though.. to have mini contests with the wife.
Ha, good luck. I always feel so much better when I am working out and active.
I’m sure it will be good for you both! I’ll bet a steak on that one.
or Money Schoemaker 🙂
Good luck.. 😉 I know my wife would be beat thats for sure.
way to spice it up
If you’re as good at triathlons as you are PPC, you should have no problems taking her 😉
Go shoemoney wife!
I think my wife would kick my ass. Maybe a little more info on your wife’s athletic ability would give us a better gauge for voting. Good Luck anyway. Jeremy Jr. has a nice ring to it.
I love the way you have “No” as option number one 😛
haha shoemoney is losing
Yep Jeremy, I reckon you will win. It aint easy, I know I’d be stuffed in no time, the only thing that makes it happen is sheer determination.
Good luck – but then, good luck to your wife too.. after all, who else would do all this with you (not that I know you or your wife).. 🙂
You should have some one record it so we can watch. 🙂
Go Shoe! I’m routing for ya man.
Those are some high stakes!
Excellent point. Be careful what you wish for.
BTW, a highlight film would make a killer You Tube video.
Mo for short.
Mo’money, Mo’money…. 😀
That typo could be a hint at what Shoe fears losing control of most: choosing what the loser will eat at the restaurant for 1 month.
Hopefully, she does. 🙂 haha.. Be a man and let the lady choose her place!
Haha, good luck at that Jeremy 🙂
Hey Y’all, just want to say thanks for all the support. Our neighbors are judging the competition and we hope to have some video as well. I think I will out run him but will probably fall behind in the basketball and the swimming will be an even match. I am no athelete either but the whole plan is to have some fun working out. J.
The loser needs preperation time to bring the A game so one month sounds superb
she gets the right side doesn’t she?
Yup, he could be nicknames ‘JJ’ 🙂
Hey Shoe. Good luck to you! That sounds like a blast although I would STRUGGGGLE at the swimming.
Similar to a sporting event I’m trying to get started called Getaway Games. Sorry for plugging my own event but this was right along the same lines so I couldn’t resist. Thought maybe you and your wife could come to Illinois and get a team in June 🙂 Or maybe an ‘Internet Marketer/Blogger’ all-star team! lol…
this is quite funny. i voted in favour of your wife that reason why i did this is because we all compture freaks spend hrs in front of computer and we have not much physical exercise on the other hand ur wife is doing a tough job as a doctor. So i think she is more strong than you. 🙂
lol, good luck Shoe!
him? I hope she doesn’t read your blog or it won’t matter if you win 😛
Your wife will win it.(Although you can)
Jeremy, next time you should pick something on your league, like challenge her to see who build the most trafficked website or the most successful affiliate program.
Stay strong Jeremy… I hear eating at Amigo’s isn’t that bad…
Can i be your neighbor ? any house for rent near you ? (o’.’o)
Video? Awesome! 🙂
Gee.. Put that up if you would have one. It would definitely be hilarious!
Do you have to make 50shots in a row or you can spend the whole day there?
Of course you’ll beat her! With so much at stake how can you afford to lose?
That photo of you with the Azoogle ads check is fake.
That picture of you with the Azoogle ads check is fake.
Ok, i have to admit it is the same here :O
Tie her shoes together 😉
Hope you are swimming indoors seems a weeeee bit chilly eh?
Arreh? The huge check is a dummy for a magazine.
Oh for sure!
Wow, this is a great way for me to reclaim the good side. Thanks Shoe!
Shoe’s name appears but I’m pretty sure that was Mrs. Shoe.
Anytime you have to say “sorry for plugging my own…” you probably shouldn’t do it. That’s like saying, “I don’t mean to offend you/anyone, but [insert racial/gender slur or derogatory comment]”
and put a laxative in her tea 🙂
Yeah I think you are right… my mistake.
Thanks for the advice jim.
those are some strict rules, hopefully next month will go your way
That’s how to make Jeremy really loose
Woops, typo 😉
no shit man 🙂
Hey, great post. I used your example in a post on my site, Romance Tracker, to illustrate how can build better relationships. Thanks, ShoeMoney!
The picture is fake? Or the check is?
Still waiting on that video!
This just popped up again in my Bloglines, but it looks like you have a week left until round 2 eh?
It is good to have some exercise regulary.
It is good to have some excercise when you are sitting in front of the PC every day.
are you kidding, my fingers get plenty of exercise!!!
