This is the subhead for the blog post

All right, all right. So Team Max CPC (the PPC Associates Chicago office) won the inaugural Fitbit ROI Challenge. It’s not like they got a treadmill or anyth…oh, wait. Yeah, they won a treadmill.

And even the toughest San Mateo competitors, their Fitbit Ultras battered and their legs weary, will admit the Chicago office earned it. Behind Laura (one MILLION steps) Rodnitzky, Melissa Bregar, Kristin Kopp, Sean Nowlin, Jaime Sikora (second in steps this week in the closest tally yet) and team captain Brittni Hamman, among other worthies, the Maxers won every single week of the challenge — and covered themselves in 10K glory to boot.

What to watch for in the next Fitbit ROI Challenge: “The next one?” you say, incredulously. Yup, the next one.

There will be scores to settle. Names to defend. Different metrics in play. And if you think we’re just splitting the teams by location again, you haven’t been paying attention. (Does anyone feel a draft? Because I feel a draft.)
