I am linking up with Marcia at Marcia’s Healthy Slice, Erika at MCM Mama runs and Patty at My no guilt life for Tuesdays on the run where today’s topic is interesting stuff you find along the roadside.
I haven’t found too many whacky things on my runs, maybe I don’t pay attention much but here are a few that come to mind :
Cows and fireman. These are my favorite roadside ”finds” when I run. Cows in the countryside. Firemen in the city.
A gym bag. Many people drive to the park/woods where I run, and once I found a gym bag just lying there on the ground. Someone had left it after they drove away. I felt really badly for that person all day long. Think of that moment when they realize that they left their bag on the side of the road 8 hours ago ! You just know that even if you went back, it wouldn’t be there….
Trash. Unfortunately this happens a lot on Sunday mornings, after people picnicked or partied in the park Saturday night. Seriously people, can’t you put the trash IN the trash can instead of NEXT TO IT ? !
Cats in Istanbul. There are so many stray cats in Istanbul, people feed them and take care of them. They were all over the place.
…and sadly I have seen 2 dead cats in Paris, where I usually run. I think they had been hit by cars but looked so peaceful just lying there. And I ran by them several times. It made me sad every time I ran by.
Pray for Paris. I came across this child’s chalk drawing a few days after the terrorist attacks.
I have never found any money. No dog has ever chased me. And I haven’t come across anything that I would pick up and bring home. Well, except the firemen.
Tell me about one of your finds !
