Well, a couple miles into the run, I saw a can in the road. I usually smash and carry aluminum cans back to a neighbor (she uses the recycling $$ to support the American Heart Association). I have carried up to 12 recyle cans at a time, which is kinda cool but also sad that I can find so many cans along the road.
So I veered over to the center of the road, where I found a can of Natural Lite beer still with a couple ounces inside. Since it was in the middle of the road and had not been smashed or blown off to the side, I presume it was a brand new litter, which got my mind racing:
- Who drinks beer at 7:30 in the morning? (I like beer but I do wait until at least noon to imbibe)
- The littering is unconscionable.
- Natural Lite is, well, something that rhymes with "miss." Yuengling--made in PA since 1829--is my beer of choice.
Oh, and the link to Ultrarunning? I like to stash a can of my beloved Yuengling in my running bag to enjoy after a training run or race.
