My title doesn't have anything to do with what I found. I set out for a run this a.m. & forgot my Bondi Band. Gah! I hate when that happens. I felt so naked my whole run. And sweat kept dripping in my eyes. It was awful. Although I still managed to run 6, almost 7 miles. I love my BB, but it won't keep me from my run. I need to stash a few (I do have a few to spare) in the van so if I get away from the house I have that as a back up.
Anyway. Found me some treasures this week. See picture below & then I will explain.
I was recently cleaning out my garage & came across all the other bottles I have collected on my runs. I had realized that it had been a long time since I had found one worth picking up. So I was excited to find this big ole bottle along N. Lake Storey Road. There was even a swig or two left in it. Likely back wash, I guess, but still full of liquor smell as I dumped it out.
The golf ball I found at the very end of my run. I was running across a field to get to where I had not so smartly placed my water bottle. When I swooped down to pick up the ball my eyes got drowned in sweat from NOT wearing my Bondi Band. I had to stop & walk and try to get the extremely salty sweat out of my eyes without making it worse.
The cards I found earlier in the week along Main St. as I turned onto Edwards Ave. I saw the 3 Skip Bo card before I even was upon it. I was able to run by it, swoop down and snatch it without even stopping. Score a find for my blog. I took a few more steps and saw two more cards, but mentally said one is enough. I wasn't going to pick up a whole deck if that's what I was going to find. A few more steps and I said out loud "oh, wait....is that what I really just saw?!?!?" My mind had this mini nano second argument. Just keep going. Not go back and see if that IS really what you saw. The later won and I flipped back to look at the other two Skip Bo cards I had passed. Yep, there laying side by side were the cards numbered 4 & 8. That really only means something to me, but I'll share. 48 is my LUCKY NUMBER! Not that I really believe in luck. So I guess I should say it's my FAVORITE number. It has been for probably almost 25 years. The original reason it was my favorite doesn't even exist anymore, but it has stuck. I have a lot of favorites like that. I got stuck on it for one reason, but even after that no longer mattered, it was still a favorite. Part of the loyalty that comes with who I am.
Did you find any treasures while you were out running?
