#RunChat Hunt

Back in November/December I participated in the #RunChat Holiday Hunt. Well they’re at it again with the help of ENERGYbits, so I had to join in the fun. These were the items to find this time:

1. Trail path (or evidence of running on a trail)
2. Funny road/store/church sign
3. A dog (yours or someone else running with one)
4. Someone fishing
5. Sunrise or sunset
6. Farm equipment
7. Road kill
8. A great local dive bar
9. Pay phone
10. Gnome

When I first looked at the list I figured I could get the sunset and someone fishing rather easily by running down the beach. Farm equipment wouldn’t be too hard either if I went over to the Palmer Ranch neighborhood for a run. I also figured I could look up a trail and run it one day too. Those were the easy ones; the other were really going to take some hunting.

Within my first two runs, I had already found four items! The first two I found during my Dumbo Double Dare Week 7 long run. I found “road kill” and “a great local dive bar.” The road kill was the first one I came across and this was the chain of events: EWW! DEAD BIRD! DEAD BIRD! Oh wait…I need that for #RunChatHunt. So I snapped a picture and went on my way. Since I ran 6 miles I went in to Siesta Village, and was able to get the dive bar picture. We have plenty of those down there, so I took a picture of Gilligan’s because it was the last one before I left the Village and I was ready for a walking break.

I was a little worried about the sunset picture though. I was running around the time of sunset, but there were lots of clouds and it didn’t seem like there would be a nice sunset, but just as I finished my run and was walking up the beach to the condo, the sun broke through the clouds and I was able to snap a picture. Perfect way to end my run.

There are only a few more days left for the #RunChatHunt and I have plenty more to find. I just need to actually get outside for a run again. If you want to join in the fun, be sure to check out the list and start hunting! You have until July 5th to get your items in.
