Zoo and a 5K

We went with my mom and Peter to the Zoo. It was a lot of fun. Peter liked the elephants, gorillas, and all the little animals. A couple of the dinosaurs on display scared him. I don’t think he quite understands that they are models. He also got lucky and rode the train and carousel. He was in tears after getting off the carousel, the ride was much too short for him. It was fun because Joe was there, even with finals this week.

Yesterday, I ran a 5K that Joe’s school did. I have never ran that far. Generally a mile is long enough for me. Joe and I have been running in the morning for a while, and I was surprised to find that I could run the whole thing. I was very proud of myself. I did not run very fast however, it was 3.5 miles (it was a little long) in 40 minutes. I’m still alright with that. My parents, brothers and Joe ran too. My mom beat me, but not by much. My little brother Daniel did really well and was 7th overall and beat everyone else in the family. He’s 15, so he would have won is age class, except the race wasn’t that big.

Joe should get done with school on Tuesday, and then I’m sending him to work to help finish all the landscaping projects that have been piling up.

    I want to get to the zoo this month so bad! Before the dinosaurs are gone. Anyway looks like fun! Congratulations on your 5k! That’s so awesome. Maybe someday I’ll do one… As it is I want to die after running 90 seconds so it’ll be a while lol. Maybe my new dog will get me running??? Hopefully haha. Seriously though, we need to do something again soon! Heaton loves playing with Peter!
