Well, we did it. Ella and I managed to finish the Zoo Run Run 5k on Saturday. Despite the cooler weather and the fact that there was music playing and she said "I don't know how I am going to run when I just want to dance" she did great. About 1/4 of a mile into it she wanted me to carry her and she did not want to walk or run "another step". However, things turned around. She kept me very entertained. I had to explain what mating was, Ella cried once, sat on a bench, checked out a white tiger and found a big rock to rest on too. Overall it was a very enjoyable 58 mins and 42 seconds. We even stopped to take some pictures.
