I have mentioned how I like to enhance the trails by picking up the trash and recyclables. What is interesting about the colder weather is that there are fewer users and the ones that are out are the regulars. The amount of trash and recyclables that are cast off along the trail has drastically reduced. In fact, I did not spot a single returnable container today and ran the standard 7 mile loop without a break! Maybe the fact that I'm actually running also lends to being less likely to spot a candy wrapper or pop can!
