I don't, but I'm about to start running with my son... I bet he would like something like that. I'll check it out, thanks for the recommendation.

I have some friends who do. I don't have a smartphone, so no apps for me.

So awesome!!! I did the couch to 5K training plan about 1.5 years ago and have been running since.  Prior to that I did yoga, but it was taking too much time away from the family and I wanted something that was a little more active and "faster" at burning calories. 

We bought a double jogger that DH pushes.  Several days a week we run as a family.  The kids usually get out and run with us at the end.  I'm really hoping they'll do a race soon!! I think DD4 would LOVE that!

I downloaded Couch to 5K for my phone today... I think we can probably use at least some of that. We are actually pretty active all winter long, although not running, so I don't know that we'll stick to it religiously. I think it will help, though.

I do like that this is something DS and I can do together, and maybe we'll get DH to go with us sometimes. We do bike rides and long walks as a family, though, so I don't mind if this is more of an after school activity before DH gets home from work... I'm just looking forward to getting in shape and sharing the fun of racing with DS! :)
