I've been getting in my runs for my half; so nice to run on bike paths. I will have to use the one near me when I get back home. It's also been nice for winter in Wisconsin, which is a great benefit.
It's also been fun to spend more time with my family. Not concentrated time - we usually do our own thing most of the day - but we are doing some fun stuff together as well.
Like - cookie baking!
And the zooooooooooooo!

It was pretty much perfect. It was a relatively warm day but there was hardly anyone there. And as you can see, the animals were all out!
After the zoo we hit the Original Pancake House, where I proceeded to clean my plate. Which was alright as I was fueling for the 8 mile run a couple hours later. Do not ask what I am fueling for with the cookies/licorice I ate tonight
With all that excitement there is always exhaustion, as modeled by sweet Luna below.
I'm exhausted and happy, and have 2+ more days to enjoy this feeling!
