My wife introduced me to a neat website where exercising meets social media. The name of it is LifeKraze.com, and it is really quite interesting. You sign up using Twitter or Facebook, then you post a 160-character update of something fun that you did, something exercise related. You also get 300 points to give out. As people read your update, they can give you between 10 and 50 points for it. Likewise, you get to give out between 10 and 50 points to other people, based on how awesome you think their activities were.
On my first day, I got 850 points for posting about my run yesterday with the dog. I posted a picture with it, so that probably A) proved that I was out on the trail and B) got people to give me more points because people like dogs. This was the picture, by the way:
