Kids Running: Our Marathon-in-a-Month

I love running so much, that I have wanted to share the experience with my kids.  Running has helped me manage depression and anxiety, migraine headaches and stress.  It makes me feel good and healthy.  So far, Eden is training for a half marathon, and Brett runs with her on her runs up to 5 miles.  But I wanted the little kids to start running, too.  So we set a goal that during 2012, we would run a “Marathon – in – a – Month.”

The first time Lucy told someone she was going to run a marathon, she got a funny look.  But she is!  26.2 miles in one month.  Since the weather was beautiful, and Lucy got new running shoes last week, we decided to start today.  We went to our favorite walking path, and did 1 1/2 miles running and walking.

I was amazed at how far Max could run before starting to walk.

It was a great start to our mini marathon.  Hope you are enjoying your day!
