Well I’m very glad that the tiger didn’t make you his afternoon snack! That must have been a bit unnerving. After that I think I would have told them it’s time to go see the new anteater exhibit, enough with the man-eating animal. It’s great you got to feed the giraffes. Your grandmother told all about how much you liked giraffes after I wrote the My Morning Run entry back in January. How cool was it to be standing next to a creature that tall?
Are you still eating? I know how tough it is for you. Any time you want to head back to Kiku-Yama just let me know. We’ll get you a pile of the shrimp I saw you digging into on Tuesday night. I liked that dish too. I think I’ll be getting next time we go.
I got out for my first run today since March 22. It went ok. Slow and steady. But don’t worry, we will be doing the marathon. I wouldn’t miss it. Not even a hungry tiger will stop me. (Actually it might make me run faster!) We got 2 weeks; plenty of time.
I need something really important from you, partner. I need one of your orange Brendan’s Buddies bracelets. I’m going to wear it during the marathon.
I just looked at the clock. It’s late, so you won’t see this tonight because hopefully you are sleeping. I hope you are feeling a little better. I know you got yet another busy day seeing doctors, so I’ll give you a call late in the afternoon to see how you made out.
