Haiku winners!

Hi haulers. Life got crazy last week, and then there was Rosh Hashahnah and baking, and then there was the Disney Wine and Dine Half Marathon and this:

 

Suffice to say, stuff got pushed back. And while there will be updates on all of the goofiness, I didn’t want to wait any longer to announce the winners of Haul Buns’ haiku contest. A quick note about how the winners were picked: Mr. Haul Buns did it. I took the names off and showed them to him, and he chose. If you’ve got beef, take it up with him.
Anywhooo, congrats to Stephanie Pinsdorf and Maggie Ellen!
Stephanie’s haiku:
it’s the crack of dawn
time to get my workout on
so the pounds be gone

Maggie’s haiku:

 Six years cancer free
 My sneakers against pavement
 Salubrious life!

 

Both Maggie and Stephanie will receive a copy of My Run: The Terry Hitchcock Story. Great job, ladies! And thanks to everyone who sent in poems!

CONTEST: Five lines to glory

You budding bards may be wondering exactly what you’ll win if your poem is chosen in the Haul Buns haiku contest. Aside from the admiration of your fellow haulers, the authors of the top two haikus will win DVD copies of My Run: The Terry Hitchcock Story.

My Run is a documentary about Hitchcock, the Santa-looking guy on the left in the awesome track suit, a widower who ran the equivalent of 75 marathons in 75 days to raise awareness about the challenges single-parent families face. If it sounds a little strange, it is; Hitchcock was a middle-aged guy in just-okay health who hadn’t run very much before he undertook his journey. But his story is also incredibly moving, especially if you’ve ever gone about doing something that seemed absolutely impossible at the outset. My Run is super motivating, especially for runners; when it was in theaters, my run group went, and we cried like babies.

Thanks to the folks at My Run for providing the DVDs for the giveaway!

Watch the trailer below, and then start crafting those haikus!

Be silly. Have fun. And please don’t take yourself seriously. Send your haikus to haulbuns [AT] gmail [DOT] com. Feel free to submit as many times as you like by 11:59 p.m. EDT on Thursday, Sept. 22, 2011.
