Technology makes it easy to let kids watch too much TV or play too many video games. Since it’s less common these days to be outside running around and burning off energy, getting enough exercise is tough unless we make a conscious effort to make it happen. Finding running events you can do as a family is a great way to get quality time and instill the importance of being healthy and active!
This past weekend, Silas and Savannah did their very first 1 mile Kid’s Fun Run! Jacksonville Running Company put on a great event that started with the Sunny Runner Shamrock 5k and also included a Kid’s Fun Run where all the little ones got their very own medal!
They were both so excited and a little nervous before we got started but they took off and finished the whole mile with energy to burn! Afterwards, Silas told me he was born to run and is ready for his next race!
