Weirdest thing you've ever seen on the ground during a run..? (Read 11007 times)

    Guess you'll have to cut and paste this over to your "Link between running and sex drive" thread.
    Indeed! It was this very incident which sparked my interest!! Smile

      Hi guys and gals! Especially warm "Hello" to Zoom Zoom. I haven't been on here for months and months.
      Purdey!!! Where have you been? Shame on you for leaving us without a goodbye! Let's not let that happen again. Evil grin

        My dearest Zoomster. I had to undergo fairly major surgery which has meant no running at all for Purdey for the last (almost) 18 mths!! I just couldn't bear to come on here and read all about how you guys were getting on knowing that I couldn't get out the door! Anyway, back to square 1 for Purdey. Aim is still a 24hr ultra, but will have to be Oct 09 now! Where are those trainers?

          Sorry, not on the ground, but I had to post. I saw an older gentleman (late 70's-ish) on the Monon trail today walking with a giant umbrella (it wasn't raining), smoking a cigar and pushing a cat in a stroller!
          I wonder if he knows the old lady here in Duluth that pushes her poodle (Mr. Bubbles) in a wheelchair. Not weird but I have been missing my wheel cover for my car for about a year now and the other day I was running along and right there in the ditch was a matching wheel cover for my car. Definitely not from my car but it was a perfect match so now I have all four again.
            This morning, running our typical route: 1. a TV 2. a fox 3. 2 living deer 4. 1 dead deer, intact skeleton (not sure how I missed that before, but I assume it was there) Usually don't see much. I feel like the Dr. Seuss book about Mulberry Street - I am always looking for something, but don't anything exciting.

              Ahhh...I can understand that, but you should tell people before you disappear into the Trenternetâ„¢. I often wonder what happens to people who are active on RA, then disappear. I worry about Bernie...haven't heard from him since he came in to say that he was doing well and the cancer treatments were working. When he disappeared again I can't help but fear the worst.

                I saw a dead dog at the side of the road once. It was not a pretty sight. You could see its internal organs. It was disgusting. And then I ran past it again three days later.

                      OMG, that is the cutest thing! The only turtles I have seen on runs are bigger and squished or one VERY massive, angry-lookin' snapper on the bike path that I gave a LOT of room.

                            I cracked up when I saw your turtle pic for the day!! Too funny.

                              I saw a pregnancy test on a recent long run. Greg
                                When I'm in school in Oakland, (city) the only weird things I see are condoms, tampons, and other such necessities of life. Back here at home its usually just the occasional roadkill...
