Most interesting sight while on a run?

Inspired by Old Floss I was wondering what the most interesting thing you saw while running? I have seen some amazing countryside but also some pretty gross things too. Did have to pick my way through an assortment of giant black slugs creeping over a woodland path, they were huge and pretty determined to get across the gravel path to see the woodland - bless them!

  • Oooh a deer, rabbits, squirrels, baby black lambs, baby goats and Llamas and Ostrich! ( My run goes through an agricultural college where they have rare animals. Its lovely.

  • I was running on a beach at the Bay of Islands in New Zealand early one morning and saw some Maori men practicing their war dances. Brilliant - sadly the photos didn't come out.

  • I saw a bloke get arrested. No idea what for 🙂 Sorry, half a story 😁🙄

  • I saw a heron fly not too far in front of me and stand on the path, I thought it was beautiful and I have only ever seen 2 other herons in my lifetime so I thought I'd take a quick picture while it surveyed it's domain!

    I fumbled for my phone and got the camera app ready, looked up and it had gone!

    I jogged to where it was and it had just stopped to do a poo.

    Not so majestic now, glad I didn't get a picture of some wildlife mid squat 😂

  • Out on a group run one of us lesser mortals slid over on a bank taking out one run leader, who in turn took out the other run leader (it being us, dogs were also involved). Not so sure it's interesting as such, just very funny.

  • What a great post!

    Can I add blue jay, icebergs and a huge pile of steaming (fresh!) moose poo!

    Not all the same day!

  • One early morning about 30 young soldiers heading straight at me! Well worth getting up early for that alone !!!

  • Erm... a naked bloke? I was in Copenhagen (IbenCopenhagen I don't know if this happens often?) and on one of the swimming piers next to Islands Brygge (I think). He just stripped off completely and dived in.

    The other fab thing was that I was stopped on my run by a herd of elk across the path. Best excuse ever for turning back! This is why running tourism rocks - you don't get that excuse for cutting a run short in Derbyshire!
