My running partner today.

It's been a bit of a slow week so far. Had some very sore legs after my Monday night strength workout and soccer game. But today, I finally started feeling better and so I decided to make it a two-a-day.

This little guy was in the middle of the road during my morning run.

Didn't want him to get hit. Looked like he'd already taken some damage a while back (right, front claw missing). So I ran back home with him, then took him to a nearby creek and sent him on his way. C'ya, buddy!

On my evening run, I ran by the spot I left him. He was long gone. Dude could move pretty good for having bum front foot! ;)


  1. LOL...cute pic. The way I ran yesterday the bum foot turtle would have smoked me.

  2. ohhhhh that's adorable. that turtle was just learning from you is all... learned to be speedy!

  3. I did that about a month ago. Came across a turtle that looked, well, almost exactly like the one with which you ran (you are a nut), and did the same thing - only I didn't run home with it because I have better sense than that (kidding). I toted him behind the nearest house. You do realize, though, that it's a SNAPPER turtle (because he didn't put his head back in - aggressive little sons of guns) and if he were any bigger he could have kicked your ass?

  4. Aw I'm glad you saved the lil turtle. Although that's one of the oddest looking turtles I've ever seen
