Run for the penguins

Some friends and I ran a 5k for the penguins at the Bronx zoo Saturday morning.  I loved traveling to and from the race with these ladies and just chatting away.  It's always so nice to have time away from the kids, not to mention doing something I love to do.  For those of you who have never been, the Bronx zoo is big and beautiful.  We ran the whole thing on the zoo grounds, and the weather was just perfect.  Unfortunately, it wasn't an official race, so we don't get official times, but I would just like the record to show that I totally made my time goal of 24 minutes (ok, 24:16 ;).  Which actually sounds pretty pathetic next to all the girls in my ward who are runners.... most of them are busting out 7 minute miles... for their marathons!  One of my friends, who is also a new mom, is training for the olympic trials!  Crazy, awesome girls!!  I think I'll stick with my pace for now. :)  

We have some pictures, but I will post them when my friend emails them to me.
