Distracted Runner

A couple of really good runs this weekend brought the most distractions I’ve had in awhile. It was remarkable. I didn’t even get photos of everything. 

I marvel at some of the random stuff I find along my routes. After four years, I just now spotted this peace sign — the fourth one of these etched in the sidewalks along my route.

This star appeared out of nowhere.
Someone had a busted onion strewn about their yard, leaving at least one heart for me to spot.Funky little pod provided a nice landing spot for his firefly friend.The “T” flash card that made me miss my youngest boy.I also saw a baby’s teething ring, plastic car keys, leftover candy from yesterday’s parade, Pom Pon strings, big toadstools, families walking home with balloon animals and kettle corn from a nearby festival, and more.

I am convinced that being a Distracted Runner actually makes me a Dedicated Runner. I can’t imagine missing out on the view of the world that being on foot brings.
