There are so many things I see on my runs that I want to write about when I get home, but like those dreams one can’t remember the day after, my memory seizes and all I could think about when I hit the computer is food. Today was special. I actually have a story for you. I’m sure you’re thrilled.
As soon as I started my run I noticed a ball that was ‘lost’ – hanging out in the gutter, no home, no owner, no great prospects, and no dreams. Ahhhhh…Poor little ball. I kicked it into the yard that was directly behind it and pursued my aspirations to get in at least seven miles. I turned the first corner down the first major road I normally run down and what do I find in the gutter? Another ball! This road, like many major roads in residential areas in Las Vegas, is bordered up and down with cinderblock walls. I threw the ball over the wall and proceeded. So now my feeble mind can’t help to think of anything but those two balls and what a weird thing it is to find these toys on the street…now we have something! My voyage for the rest of this run was to find as many things that make sense to throw back into a yard as possible…You with me? So seriously, here’s what I found:
Four balls total
One little black rubbery and stretchy action figure
What looks like a base to a balloon launcher?
Some cartoon-face thingy that had the same consistency as a stress relief ball
I threw all these over a wall or back into a yard – Hopefully all you kids that lost these toys now have them back, safe and warm. If they’re not yours, enjoy your new toys kiddies!

Nada today, but look at all the other things I found! YAY!
