Two weeks ago, my son told me about a running race that was being held one town over for all third grade kids in the area. A bunch of his friends were going and he really (REALLY) wanted to enter it. This is the child who looks 100% like my husband and shares his natural sportiness. As my husband isn't a regular runner, I was so excited to share this love of running with my son.
The only glitch in the timing was that it meant I'd have to miss my strength boot camp class. If you know me, then you know that I only miss class if I'm sick or out of town. But he wanted to race! Like me! I missed class, took him to the race, and cheered him (and his friends) on. My husband and I have modeled an active life to our kids and I'm so excited that they're following suit.
What activities do your kids love? How do you support them in their quest to be active?
