I love a good scavenger hunt, marry that with running and BAM you have awesomesauce! It’s also known as the #runchat scavenger hunt, you can find the details here.
Here are my findings:
Picture with a running stranger. Note I found 2 strangers, I think I get bonus points!
Local coffee house. We ran by 4 on one run, but only stopped to take photos at 3.
Railroad tracks / Crossing. There were a lot on today’s route, we only posed for a few pictures
Body of Water. We ran around Sand Lake and along the Iowa River (Bonus the bridge is a railroad bridge)
Port-o-potty. Had some fun with this one.
Mile marker, trail marker.
Inflatable Decorations: All I found were deflated ones
BONUS! The unofficial roadkill
A Snowman. It was super cold and windy for this run, negative wind chill
Santa! HO-HO-HO! Bonus he is actually a running stranger
Animal on a farm. I never found one, and I live in Iowa. I guess a milk semi drove by one day with a cow on the farm as the trailer image, but I never snapped a picture. I also have been running on the treadmill at the gym where I have seen numerous bald eagles. Oh and I found this “animal” on the treadmill, Roar!
