zoo run

last weekend my mom, addison, and i ran a race at the zoo.

the weather was great. it was a little chilly, but not freezing. and a little sunny, as evidenced by addison's face below.

i had every intention of wearing my hello kitty hat {which is why, as an adult, i had pigtails. still not sure that's a good enough reason}. anyways, it was too hot for me to wear the hat. so i just sported the pigtails.

i ran with addison in the stroller. the path through the zoo isn't very wide. i may have clipped a number of people with the stroller. unintentionally, of course. but some people do need to take a race etiquette course. runners on the left, walkers on the right. that's all i'll say about that.

we didn't get to see that many animals because we were running, but they had the elephants and {new to the zoo} kangaroos out and really close to us. so we stopped and looked at both. i don't think i've seen all the elephants that close. and i was really excited about seeing the kangaroos. they were really close!

the race was sponsored by outback and michelob ultra. so they had a ton of free food and beer. great way to finish a race!
