A friend is about to run for 24 hours straight, all for charity. Good cause or not, that’s just insane. Oh, and one of the laps (a ‘lap’ being 8.4 miles in this case) he’ll run in jean shorts.
But, forget all that. What’s REALLY important is Andrew Warby even wrote a haiku about his upcoming challenge.
Hours run 24
Hope it will not be a bore
Good cause, not a chore
Tracey at Stride and Joy wrote a great piece on the race and the impressive charity, Back on My Feet – an organization that helps people who are homeless to rebuild their lives through running. Trust me, it makes sense when you read it.
I’m hoping you can help a mate* out and give just a little bit to a great cause with an innovative method.
Since I’m delinquent on my Pittsburgh half marathon haiku (only because it was a fantastic weekend with Jogging Jeans and Stride and Joy and there’s so much to cover), I asked Linda Bang for a Monday haiku. She submitted one that seems fitting for the week ahead and falls naturally under our mutual obsession with healthy bowel movements. This bird needs to lay off the ex-lax.
P.S. Is ‘dookie’ a word?
Massive bird dookie

Monday mornings blow
