Johannesburg Zoo Trot

Hello Journeyers,
I am really trying my best to squeeze in at least one blog post a week so that you guys don’t think I have completely forgotten about you. I haven’t. Life has just been getting in the way. But I'm working through it. Although I don't think travelling or weekend trips will pop up on our radar any time soon.

I have really been trying to do more exercise; I'm still working on the eating better part. I have no idea what to do with my crazy sweet tooth. So if anyone can give me any tips please feel free.
My blogger friend Claudine (Purple Lips and Perfect Smiles & Tables and Thyme) told me a few weeks ago that they will be doing the Zoo Trot at the Johannesburg Zoo on Sunday.

I was in! So I invited myself. My sister joined me and there we were Sunday morning at 07H00 standing in a line to go run 5km’s.

I loved every minute of it. I'm very unfit so my target was to do it in 40min. We managed 45min. I
would have probably made 40min if I didn't stop to take so many photos. I mean I'm running in a Zoo,
the poor animals must have felt so jealous.

I love my running. That’s when I can manage to at least run 1 km without feeling like I'm going to die.
But I will get there. Every day will get better and better.

For now I know I am at least trying. And I'm loving each moment!

Till next time...
