Greetings to all! It's me, Mags. This morning, we drove downtown again, to do our walk up to the zoo! It was so awesome! Here's a shot of us up at the top:
|"How cool is this, Ragnar?!?"|
"I love it, Mags! This place smells SO GOOD!"
On the way back down (the zoo sits at the top of an upslope), we kept seeing these signs:
|"Huh. 'Pink Up The Pace'."|
"I'm going as fast as Mom will let me--wait. What?!?"
That's right - "pink", not "pick"! Apparently there was a run/walk about to take place - and that's why Mom and Dad wanted us to do a downtown walk this morning! We were there to support the runners and walkers and the great cause -- breast cancer research!
We decided to pose by one of the signs:
|Me and Ragnar!|
The race didn't start until 8:00, so we were pretty much done with our walk by the time it started. Before too long, we saw the first of the runners! We stared and sent mind-meld messages:
|"Hey! Way to go!"|
"You got this, buddy!"
|"When bipeds race, Ragnar, they don't have to pull sleds."|
As the big sister, it's my duty to fill Raggi in on stuff like this.
|"Yeah, strange but true. Still, they have fun, get exercise, and raise money for a worthy cause."|
"Then it's totally worthwhile ... but a little strange!"
We went around greeting people for a while, then ran into a friend of Dad's. He's the mayor of our town and was volunteering at the race, handing out beer and pizza. Sadly, we got neither. We posed for a photo with him anyway:
Mom had treats, but Ragnar and I were busy doing one of our favorite things -- staring at people!
We sure had fun at Pink Up The Pace! Thanks for coming along!
That is a spectacular cause, and I am sure you inspired the runners.ReplyDelete
How fun to be on a walk and see all those people helping out a good cause.ReplyDelete
How nice you could go out and support the walkers. All of those type of things are still off limits here.ReplyDelete
What a great cause and a great morning you had, but they couldn't give you just a little pizza?ReplyDelete
