~*Get Your Run On*~

A few years ago I came across the program, "Girls on the Run". I was interested in what this program consisted of and I wanted to know the details, however, details are pretty scarce. You can find a few sample lessons but, honestly, I felt that the visualization stuff was a little flaky for me. The main reason is that we do not have a GOTR program in our County and I was not about to start one, also, I have boys, too, that I would like to include!

I came across two different programs that I am interested in doing with and for my children. Because we are keeping this affair private I will not be including other families, children or students but I did want to share the information with other families who might just decide to join us in their own program. 

The first program I found is by Kilometer Kids. 
The second program is Kids Run the Nation. 
I will be combining them and using this as a base running "curriculum" for my children.
Also, here is a great resource for other ideas by Runner's World

What about me?

I joined the Joggermom Marathon!  
 The premise is that you have from May 1st until May 31 to log in 26.2 miles.  I only managed 1 mile today...I was tired...Seven kiddos will do that to ya! 

I will give weekly updates on meeting the marathon goal and do hope you can join me for getting active this month!

Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize.
