Woke up at 7 am on a brisk fall morning and put on my hot pink shorts and comfy running shoes. We ran the Henry Vilas Zoo Run Run 5k. It was Abby’s first 5k, my second, and our first race together. I made some killer smoothies and had two pumpkin muffins. Then we hit the road and walked over to the zoo.
The Zoo Run Run was very fun but very hilly. The hills were brutal, but somewhere we pulled out a 30:28 time. We had a good time walking around the zoo before the race hanging out with all the animals.
We packed a post-race goodie bag of chocolate milk and bananas. Chocolate milk makes a great recovery drink because it is packed full of nutrients. Abby and I drink it after our killer runs or we make our smoothies with it. Did you know that some school cafeterias are getting rid of chocolate milk? Isn’t that crazy? It’s funny because I actually drink it because it’s healthy! Check out this comparison below and Chocolate Milk Has Muscle:
Now here is the AWESOME giveaway I’ve been talking about! The awesome folks at the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board have t-shirts for me to giveaway to three readers. Leave a comment by Tuesday at noon CST, and I’ll randomly pick three winners. And check out their website, there are some pretty interesting statistics about milk consumption and kids.
Oh and check out Abby’s and mine awesome chocolate milk muscles. It would make Grandpa proud!
