Running wild at the zoo

Last year's Zoo Run was a big disappointment. Not because there was anything wrong with the race itself, but because for some reason the usual kids runs weren't included. Emily was heartbroken that she didn't get to participate.

Thankfully the kids races were reinstated this year, so Emily and Kendall, along with their friends Tyler and Nolan, got to compete in the Chicken Cha-Cha and the Zebra Zip. It was funny watching the girls race -- they each had such different styles. Emily took it very seriously and booked it as fast as she could around her course. Kendall, on the other hand, wasn't sure which way to go -- or whether she wanted to run at all without her mom going along with her.

Misty did the Run Wild for Orangutans 5K, accompanied by her friend and co-worker Shannon. They didn't earn medals like the kids did, but luckily neither of them cried.

Here are more pictures from the Zoo races.
