What is the most interesting thing you've seen on a run?
As I do most of my runs early in the morning (between 4:00 and 6:00) I don’t see that many people or people related things during my runs. Over the years there is a few that stand out.
Once I found a Spotted Eagle owl in the road. It seemed to be injured and I thought it was struck by a car. I went home and drove back with my car armed with thick gloves and a blanket to rescue the owl. I took it to a bird sanctuary where they help injured birds. Unfortunately it died soon after arriving there. They said it was poisoned and not struck by a car.
Other interesting stuff on my runs:
The IIS and Space Shuttle together before docking.A few car accidents, one serious.
A drunk couple going at it in their car with all the doors open.
A police helicopter chasing a hijacked car.
I’ve also run on game farms and in nature reserves where I’ve seen wonderful wildlife including lions, elephants, rhino’s, all kinds of antelope, baboons, apes, snakes, giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, lizards, hundreds of birds and just about anything alive you find in South Africa.
Wow, running is so great!
