This is a great article how important it is to combine family time and workout time together. For me - my daughter goes to the gym with me (and my mom) we treadmill, strength train together. What is great is she is 11 years old. She pushes me out the door so I go. We are planning to jog/run/walk (haha) a 5K in March together.

As I a kid I loved jumping rope. I got in a good workout (other wise known as played) and learned to count by two's as we often did when jumping rope. You are so right, kids love to run. My son used to believe that a new pair of sneakers made him run faster. Perhaps I should treat myself to new sneakers just to test his theory.

If you donít like it, donít eat it. -- Nice, but authority figures do make you eat it. Hence, then next truth: chances are your eating habits wonít stick around long if you hated what you were eating. -- Thus, the disaster called my health.

At 66, and over weight, I don't even THINK of RUNNING...really? I can do that? WHY NOT. Love this article...Thanks so much for sharing.

Kids aren't different. Adults are different...discouraging outside play, buying videos and video games for gifts instead of bicycles and pogo sticks. Speaking as a teacher for the last 30 years, and the mother and grandmother of 5, left to their own devices, kids would rather be active, not team stuff, just run around and have fun stuff than sit just about anywhere. They behave and learn better too, if they can just go out and play for a while.
