We Can't Wait To Go To The Zoo + It's National Penguin Day!

This post was sponsored by Stonyfield yogurt. All thoughts are my own.

Has it really been just over a week since I ran the Boston Marathon? I have enjoyed a week of zero running and recovery (well, other than the fact that I was running around taking care of my family that got the horrible flu virus! Well, that is a story for another day...). I can't believe how fast this week has flown by and I am working on the race recap to give you all of the details, so stay tuned.

In other news, did you know that today is National Penguin Day? Yeah, I didn't either, until Stonyfield yogurt passed along the info this week. This is way cool and my kids are super excited!

To commemorate World Penguin Day, Stonyfield and AZA are hosting a Facebook Live for kids and their parents to get a firsthand look at these majestic seabirds, as well as the conservation work being done to save them. Tune in to this Facebook Live broadcast direct from Mystic Aquarium in Mystic, CT. Kids and their parents can get a firsthand look at these majestic seabirds, as well as the conservation work being done to save them, with a Facebook Live broadcast today (April 25th), direct from Mystic Aquarium’s Penguin Encounter. During the broadcast a penguin trainer will provide insight into the care, behavior and conservation of African penguins, and viewers will also have the opportunity to see real African penguins firsthand as well as ask the trainer questions in real time. Tune into the @Stonyfield Facebook page at 12:00 PM today to catch the broadcast!

In celebration of World Penguin Day, Jerold and I have an opportunity to visit the zoo with our kids in a couple of weeks! We haven't been to the zoo together as a family in a while, so everyone is excited about this special trip.

Stonyfield YoKids is sponsoring the AZA SAFE (Saving Animals from Extinction) program; together on a mission to help save endangered species. As part of a year-long effort, Stonyfield will not only be contributing funds to field work but aiming to drive kids and their families to see animals and conservation projects first hand at zoos, aquariums, and on the ground where the research is happening.

Humm, I wonder what we'll be snacking on during our giant trip to the zoo? You guessed it, Stonyfield yogurt! My kids are big fans of the yogurt squeezers and I love the vanilla yogurt topped with granola and fresh berries.

As the leading organic yogurt maker, Stonyfield takes care with everything it puts into its yogurts and everything it keeps out. By saying no to toxic persistent pesticides, artificial hormones, antibiotics and GMOs, Stonyfield has been saying yes to delicious, healthy food for more than 30 years. 

Alright, I am off to stretch and go for an easy run today to get my legs used to running again. I hope you guys enjoy World Penguin Day and don't forget to tune into the live broadcast!

Happy running!
