I've come home with one shoe after a drunken night out
we expect nothing less from you!
3 Budweiser bottles in a row this morning
Opened and I assume empty...
I was on an evening run a couple of months ago when a fox jumped out of a hedge right in front of me!
We both looked at each other in surprise for a second, then the fox ran off in one direction and me in the other!
Couple of years ago, I was out at 5:30am running and ran past a horse that had got out of its field and was happily eating flowers in a garden
Okay so I'm a morning runner
I have to confess to a lost shoe once too - a red sling back, size 5, if anyone comes across it. Somehow lost it on the way back to the B&B from a wedding in the Pennines- loved those shoes too! Kept the other one for ages in the hope that it would magically reappear!

I think that was the night I dropped my phone down the loo too ...
Sleepy Bear, mine were my fav shoes too!
Well, that explains the missing shoe mystery, so if we were to take this information and use it, it could say that runners in general are morning people, who turn lightweight and lose theirshoes when do they venture out in anything other than trainers and shorts.
And Sleepy bear, my ambition to be the random sight is going further away, with bag-pipes and animals it's a tall order.
So glad I spotted this thread as the other week I was running through an industrial estate when I passed a woman running towards me and she was wearing a welding mask. It was flipped up and I can only imagine it was her weird idea of a sunvisor?
Also during the south downs marathon last year a group of us reached the top of one the hills only to find a naked hiker complete with rucksack and hiking boots.

Not exactly a sight but the weirdest thing I've ever been asked on a run is 'Do you have a lighter?' !!!! I had headphones in aswell......seriously!
they probably said "are you a fighter?"
Shame they didn't ask the welding lady - she could have loaned them her torchy thingy wotsit!
Catalin - romance is not dead then!
BOTF - was he playing inside the camper van? Now that is weird - not a lot of room either I would have thought!
EG - am disappointed! May I suggest wearing an owl/llama costume whilst riding a unicycle!
Nothing exciting to report this week - looks like my world has returned to normal! Though I did smile at a field full of sheep all stood/laid with their backs to me so that they looked like half snowmen in the frost. Couldn't see their legs but then they were half way across the field and facing into the sun.
Not sure it's totally fair to start stacking sheep up to see if they do look like snowmen if you put two together
Yesterday I narrowly avoided seeing a fox on the beach in Brighton. It was spotted by my friend who had run ahead.
I did see half a dozen people in chef aprons standing in a boat holding platters of food. They were being photographed from the Brighton food festival. WIll have to look out for the pictures and see if there are any runners in the background!
I think sheep stacking is a good idea Sleepybear. You could start a sheep circus if they were good at balancing on each other.
