Running Treasure Hunt Fun With RunChat

Once again, David and Scott gave me a reason to brave the cold this December with another fun round of the #RunChat running treasure hunt — also known as #RunChatHunt. 


I’m not sure what the rules were and I didn’t win any prizes, but I had fun plotting my routes to get pictures of as many items on the list as I could. To make my runs even more festive, I listened to my Xmas Playlist (you can see my list fast-paced holiday songs here) and warmed up afterwards with a peppermint mocha. 🙂 

I was surprised that I couldn’t find any old political signs, and the holiday displays in my neighborhood weren’t very tacky–unlike the one I saw last year! I had a run planned that could have gotten me the train picture, but that’s the run I had to skip because I wasn’t feeling well. I knew I wouldn’t be able to find a farm animal–I’m pretty sure Tiger Lilly doesn’t count! 

Have you participated in a running treasure hunt? 

Did you play along with #RunChatHunt?

Before you take off for the holidays, mark your calendars for the next Ultimate Cofffee Date link up on Saturday, January 3, 2015.

  2. Aw man. I completely missed out on this. I’ve been missing out on #RunChat for probably a month or two now. Really need to get back into that one. Always fun.
