So close...again!

Last Wednesday, Another Mother Runner hosted a giveaway contest. The goal? Write the best ode to the treadmill in haiku form to win a NordicTrack C900 treadmill. Yes, I have a treadmill, but it's nothing like this thing! And I truly do love having a's my sanity-saver during the week. The only way I can get my runs done as early as I do is to hit the treadmill in the garage. My haiku:

I'm running in place,
Pounding out my frustrations,
For a better me.

And the cool thing? I made the "finalists." Yes, it would have been cooler if I'd actually won the treadmill, but making the top 6 out of 565 entries isn't bad.

And this isn't the first time I've come close either! More than a year ago, Another Mother Runner had a t-shirt slogan contest. I had several ideas, but my favorite was Run, Rest, Repeat. It was even mentioned in their post on which slogan won. While it didn't win, later, they started selling a shirt that said, Rise, Run, Repeat. So close...again!


  1. So close! Awesome to be in the finals, that was a cool contest! Good luck on Sunday - are you going to any of the blogger meet ups?

  2. Wow, you were so close! Great job and I really liked your haiku and shirt idea! I just found you through Let's Move it Mammas. So I am your newest follower!
