Run for the Zoo

This weekend was a busy one!  We had our usual errands and then picked up my packet for race day, Sunday. 

While on my way to the packet pick up site,  I spotted a quilt shop and lounge that I had never been to before.  With such designers as Amy Butler, Sarah Jane Wright (too name a few) and some of the latest Moda fabrics; it was difficult to retain myself - good thing I chose to pick up my race day goods first - I may not have made it past the cutoff.

But I digress.  I had signed up six weeks ago to run a 5K.  All race proceeds went to the New Mexico Bio Park and Zoo.

Before I had my son, I ran a half marathon in Las Vegas, Nevada.  In between Logan and Aslyn, I ran another one in Albuquerque.  It had been three years since I had ran and felt that I was more than ready to get going with it again.  No excuses.

It was a hot gorgeous day in Albuquerque with roughly 2,000 people to run the 5K alone (there was also a half marathon, 10K, and 1 mile fun run.)

Like my cheering squad?  After the race Logan came up to me and said, "Mom, you ran fast!"  (Not really, but I appreciate his support.)  Both of these little squirts tried to join in the race too, I told them next year, if they wanted too,  I will sign them up for the kid's mile fun run.

Great family event, and a fun filled day at the zoo!

Oh my gosh!! I totally spaced that your race was this weekend. Somehow I had it in my mind that it was on the 13th. I hope you will forgive me :) I was a little busy. Someday you need to do a race in Wa or Oregon and then you will have a cheering squad of 5 kids and me and we can go for coffee afterwards. I love Logan's hat. It turned out really cute.
