It seems to happen that when researching something I come across a different subject which results in an entirely different train of thought. I set out to research the shoes in the above blog ( looking to replace the swim shoes that have stretched out and flew off my foot yesterday in mid stride). The picture of the Eco-Runner carrying a garbage bag was quite a sight. I pick up garbage during a run sometimes but this guy really goes out of his way and collects an average of 5 bags per run (1200 bags of trash per year)! Inspired, I stuffed a grocery bag in a pocket and set off to meet Nicole for a run. This is how much garbage I collected after only 14 minutes of running. Crazy!
