Hi Friends! Today I am liking up with Patty, Erika, and Marcia for Tuesday’s on The Run, where we discuss all things running. The topic today is random things you have seen on the road while out running. I am really excited about this topic because I always see random items on the road. It’s just stuff that I don’t understand what it’s doing there, or where it came from. I’ve seen a lot of stuff, but I have only once picked something up. I usually run the same route near my house, so there isn’t much around here. But, when I was training for the marathon and my dad and I were running all over town, I saw a lot of things. Here are some of the random things I have seen while running.
One time I found a brand new screw driver randomly laying in the middle of the road.
Another time a saw a brand new bottle of beer just sitting on the side of the road, like someone set it there on purpose.
I have found a half of a credit card, and I actually knew the owner. Another time I found a whole credit card.
I’ve seen a syringe.
I have run upon a ton of monopoly money. Too bad it wasn’t real money.
One time when I was running at the local park, I saw a tackle box sitting next to the road. There were no cars around, and no one was nearby.
I have seen shoes, pants, shirts, and underwear. This is weird to me. How do you just lose your clothes?
At the park, I also saw an empty stroller sitting next to a trash can. I checked it to make sure it was empty.
I have seen a roll of carpet.
I found a diamond earring. This is the only thing I have ever picked up. It was huge, but of course it was fake.
Yesterday I came across a mole. This was new to me. I have never seen them outside of their holes. It was running across the road towards my driveway.
And then there’s the wildlife. I’ve seen dogs, cats, guineas, cows, horses, a snake, sheep, and a donkey. One house on my route has 12 dogs that live at it, and the house across the street has about 5 stray dogs that stay there. At least all of them are friendly!
I have seen a lot of random items, but really nothing too crazy. I’m excited about next week’s topic. I have seen all kinds of weird things happen when I’m out running. Come back next Tuesday to read about those!
