Today, our company walked as a team for the Lymphomathon at the Phoenix Zoo. It was a 5K and not really a race at all, but I decided to recap it anyway because there are adorable zoo animals involved.
I got up ridiculously early to pick up my friend, Tabatha, and still have enough time to go to her beloved Starbucks. We have our priorities.

After loading up on Mint Mochas, we headed to the Phoenix Zoo. Or tried to, anyway. My iPhone GPS kept routing us back to Starbucks. Not sure what cosmic forces were behind that, but eventually, we met up with Team Milburn for the Lymphomathon Walk.
The walk was slightly disorganized, but we had a blast. The route was actually through the zoo, so we were able to look at the animals before the zoo was actually open.

|I'm not sure how his back got all wet.|
|I heart giraffes|
|This tiger was so playful, romping around.|
We somehow ended up off course, but took advantage of some photo ops...

|Me and Frogger|
|Me, Jay and Tabatha|
|Sarah and me|
Most of our group left after the 5K was over, but if you did the walk, you got an all day pass to the zoo, so I hung out for while with Sarah, her two sons, and a coworkers son. We looked like a nice lesbian couple with our adopted brood.
|Looks like a family photo, right?|
|Jambo the giraffe, Jambo means hello in Swahili.|
I have to say that the Phoenix Zoo kind of blows. Sarah told me all about the Wild Animal Park outside of Phoenix that she says is much, much better. I'm going to have to check it out. All in all, it was a fun day and I'm glad that we did this.
