Running Mom

Although I know exercising and crafting don't really relate, I feel that it is so important for Moms and Dads to encourage their children to exercise.  It's really such an important thing for everyone to do! 

I've always been an active person.  I started playing soccer when I was eight and still play now.  I started running after the birth of my first child.  That first day was a struggle to run a mile.  The turning point for me was when I started running with a group of girls.  Running just for exercise turned into a social event.  It was so much easier to run with friends and chat the time away.  This helped me to push further and further each time.  I've gone on to run multiple marathons, half marathons, triathlons and other races.  Other advantages to running races is that my husband and I have a common goal to work toward to together, plus there are usually free kids races.  So it becomes a family event.  It really is a rewarding experience.
