When our fellow T9er asked if we wanted to spend the weekend running trails through all hours of the night, camping in a dusty field without shower access, and pushing ourselves harder than we thought possible, we didn’t think twice. Running an overnight trail race in the mountains? That’s our kind of girls’ weekend!
As part of our recent Win the Ultimate Detours Contest, we invited you to share your latest detour, “in story or haiku, rap or sonnet.” From awesome travel adventures and hilarious parenting detours, to tear-inducing tales and poignant advice, we were blown away by how you “own the detours” in your life. Here are just a few of the entries that have inspired us to head out on some new adventures of our own (detours welcomed).
And if you’re sad to have missed our latest contest, never fear; we have a new chance for you to win at the end of this post!
Week Four Challenge: Friend Detours
Take me to:
Week Three Winner
Yes, it is rest day! While you’re ready to spend the day on the couch, your friend convinces you to lace up running shoes or pull on hiking boots instead. Sometimes that unplanned workout can be a most welcomed detour. Take a photo of you and a friend getting in a workout, especially one you were reluctant to do (but aren’t you glad you did)?
This week’s winner will receive one detour-ready Dream Dress ($79) for you AND one for a friend!
