I’ve grown up and lived in Chino Hills for almost my entire life. And all of my running, biking and swimming has taken place in other cities. This past week; however, I have been running through my hometown . . . and you’d be amazed at the type of things you encounter when you run through the town that you call home.
Can you guess what my favorite animal is? I’ll give you a hint. The first three letters of the animals name matches mine . . . This is Zeb writing by the way. Have you guessed it yet? No??? Man, you’re slow. Ok, this animal also has black and white stripes all over it and looks like a horse. Wow, finally you guessed it. Don’t think you’re some kind of genius now.
Anyways, I thought Zebras only lived in Africa, or at that zoo. I had no idea that Zebras actually lived in my hometown, but they do. And it was awesome. When I went to take it’s picture it was standing about 15 feet away from me, but as soon as it realized that I was taking its picture, it came right up next to the fence to pose for a picture.
Running has it’s advantages, as you are likely to encounter things that you would not normally see. For me, I was able to see my favorite animal up close, like I had never seen one before.
