Running with my son

Tuesday, October 01, 2013

My youngest child brought home a brochure from school today about a one mile fun run for elementary aged kids. It has a training schedule for 8 weeks with a goal of running 26.2 miles total and running the last mile at an event in November. He asked me to train with him.

I think this is a total win/win! I get in shape, my son and I do something together, and he gets to participate in his first running event.

I am actually getting excited about it. I'll log our progress!

    wish they'd done something at my daughter's school when she was young. then she might not have complained so much when i tried to get her to exercise with me.
