Run For The Trees

0

I did a 5k Saturday. It was called the Run for the Trees race organized by the Track Shack.  My cousin, who I normally run with, couldn’t run cause he has something causing his foot to hurt when he runs. So he didn’t run.

When we got there I stretched. Then the race started. I ran a little faster at the beginning so I got a head start, then I slowed down a bit.  Near the end of the first mile I had to tie my shoe. So I lost 10 seconds. On the first mile we ran on the street in a neighborhood.  But at the end of the second mile the road turned to dirt and it led to the third mile. Then it was on bricks. Then over a bridge. Finally it was done. My time was originally 26:10 but I subtracted 10 because of my shoe laces. So I got 26:00 minutes. It was my PR. (Personal Record) my old time was like about 27 mins. I came 4th in my age group.  Instead of a medal, we all got trees. If you got 3rd and up in your age group you get a bigger tree. I was so close.

I got a Magnolia tree and we have now planted it in our backyard.

I’m also still doing running club thru the Track Shack. We do club running meets some times. We could chose 1600m’s, 800m’s,400m’s, 200m’s, and 100m’s. I did a 800m and 200m. I came first in 800m’s and came second by a millisecond in a 200m. It was a close one. So I got 2 ribbons.

A very strange Easter weekend

0

Saturday we went to my brother’s baseball game. It was not that exciting. Then at near the end there was a fight because the coach on the other team was a jerk. He would let the kids get free bases. So near the end the other coach was complaining. Then our coach said “what are you crying about now.” Then the other coach got really mad.  So then the other coach  took off his hat and glasses and was going to fight our coach. So the other coach raged and stared charging at him. But luckily the other coach on the team pushed him away. That not the bad part. He said to our coach,  “I’m going to f*ck you up.” In front all the kids. He said that like 5 times. Are coach was like “you don’t know me!” It was funny but bad at the same time. Also my mom got the whole thing on tape. I felt scared, curious, and I kinda and didn’t want them to fight. I think it is not good to do this a little league baseball game.

Sunday it was Easter. I woke up and started to pick up eggs. They were filled with candy and money. It was fun. Also family came over to our house to get breakfast. So family from my mom and dad’s side came. I played with my cousins. We played xbox and played outside. I ate cheesy potatoes, bacon, and pasta. It was yummy. Then we went on another egg hunt I got more candy. I had a hard time finding my green eggs because it blends in with the grass and the shrubs. It was really fun and frustrating. My little cousin won. But everyone got a prize, which was a Reese’s egg. Happy Easter!!!!!!!!

Boys Night Out

0

My mom was out with a friend so me, my brother, and my dad went out on a boys night.

First we went to see the new Captain America movie. It was awesome movie. My favorite part was the battle between the winter soldier and Captain America. We saw it in IMAX 3D.

After we went to get diner. We went to Ale House. I had honey mustard zingers. Two waitresses at the restaurant thought my brother was cute. They kept making comments the whole time. One even hugged him. It was funny.

Then we went mini golfing at Congo River. My brother and my dad got a hole in one but I didn’t.  At the end, me and my brother tied and my dad came in first. Me and my brother had 53 and my dad had 49. Then we went to get soft severed ice cream. It was a pretty fun day.

A night at Universal’s Islands of Adventure

Last weekend I went to Universal. First we went on Spider-Man. Second we went on Jurassic park the boat ride. I liked the big drop and the dinosaurs. Third we went on the Harry Potter ride. Then we went to the other Harry Potter ride for littler kids with my little brother. That’s his favorite ride at Universal.

After that we went on Dragon Challenge other wise none as dulling dragons.  After that we went to the Hułk. That’s my favorite roller coaster at Universal. Then we looked for ice cream and we couldn’t find it so we went to McDonalds.

Overall, I like Disney better because it has more rides, it has hotels and it’s so much bigger. But Universal has better and more roller coasters. Also Disney is more fun for me cause I know where every thing is and know what it is.
