That's hilarious!

I often jog along the river during my lunch hour. It's crossed my mind once or twice if I'd be the unlucky one to find somebody.

I've never found a body but a friend of mine did (here in Calgary).

Scratch that, Ruin and I found a human legbone once. Its still in the back of my car.

I think a runner wouldn't have this problem. Its only us slow poke joggers that see stuff like dead bodies.

HaHa!

Seriously, the cops in the park by my house are always stopping me to ask if I saw something. One time I did report something.

I've seen what I suspected were a couple drug deals on my very early morning runs.
I've also seen what I figured was a cop meeting with an informant on an early morning run.

I've never seen a dead human body..I have seen a fair bit of animal road kill.

I can imagine how much worse it could be for all the Russian fishermen campers who jog with their dog with drunken teenage couples! :shock: :shock:

I've only had one sex sighting - although they were enjoying the open air on their bare skin, not semi-hidden in a car. It was worthy of a blog entry in which, back to the topic at hand, I note that I've always expected to find a body on the run, but not two very lively bodies.

no kidding... I hated my early morning runs along the river for the few months after a driver drove off the bridge... his body wasn't recovered for months. :shock:
