Sunday Family Fun and Fitness

Sunday, January 11, 2015

One of the things I have committed to doing is to get more active as a family. I have set aside Sundays as a "cross-training have fun with the family while being active somehow" day. I actually really wanted to run today since the weather wasn't bad, but my kids wanted to go to the pond and walk around. So put my winter boots on and bundled up and off we went with the three boys and the pup. We had a great hour outdoors, got a little activity in, and most importantly, spent time together. It was beautiful out on the ice and the pup kept us amused as he tried to eat snow.

Moral of the story: Sometimes we give up what we really want (and even think we should do) for an even better thing. Running is a good thing for me. Spending time with my family while also being active is even better.

Maybe someday I'll convince one of them to go running with me, then I'll have the best of all possible worlds lol. :)
