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!
“It is not the critic who counts;
not the woman who points out how the strong woman stumbles,
or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.
The credit belongs to the woman who is actually in the arena,
whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood;
who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again,
because there is no effort without error and shortcoming;
but she who does actually strive to do the deeds;
who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions;
who spends herself in a worthy cause;
who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement,
and who at the worst, if she fails, at least fails while daring greatly,
so that her place shall never be with those cold and
timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
Let’s all get in the arena,

Everything I know about the game of life, I first learned on a field or a court. So many good lessons, here are a few:
-Don’t be sorry; be better.
-Whether you think you’re a loser or you think you’re a winner, you’re right.
-Practice makes permanent…like nothing else does.
-The scoreboard never lies.
-When you miss a shot, get back and play defense.
-There actually is a “me” in team, but the team is always bigger.
-When it’s time to get down to sports (or business), make sure your hair is out of your eyes.
What are some of the lessons you’ve learned from sport?
We know that listening to more financial news does not make us feel better. But a good walk, run, or ride does.
We know that some days it is nothing short of a miracle that we fit our workout in.
We know that a good sports bra is the key to a good workout.
We know that the best apparel can go through the washer and dryer.
We know that our happiest times are not spent behind a desk.
We know that the shortest distance between two points is not always the best way to travel.
