Make Tracks for the Zoo-24th Annual 5k Walk/Run

The fire trucks holding up the big flag-it looked so awesome.

All the people at the starting line...get ready, get set, GO!

Dylan & Connor hanging in the jogger before the race!

Connor enjoyed playing on the stairs in Forest Park before the race began.

Connor got to sit in the fire truck after the race -he was loving it!

My goal was to finish the race in 45 minutes!!! Yikes, I thought that would be no problem, until we got the splits, then we decided to run for most of the last mile to make my goal. We made it! We crossed the finish line in 42 minutes! Yah! Connor put his arms up as we crossed the finish line-it was cute. There were lots of people cheering & everyone was saying how cute the boys were. We were tired, but it was a lot of fun. Then we went and walked around the zoo and looked at some animals.

We went to the awards ceremony afterwards & Connor won an attendance prize: a gift certificate to some Frozen Custard place in Illinois. We were hoping for the Cardinals tickets!

We also treated ourselves to Il Vicino (a very yummy brick oven pizza place). It was delicious.

What a great Sunday!
