I am running the Shamrock Shuffle on Sunday March 30th and love the idea that this race is not only healthy for me but shows my children how staying fit is a long lived lifestyle. I get VERY emotional around races, not because of the actual race, but in how it impacts my kids and their emotional state of what “healthy” is. I have actually cried while running thinking of how this would impact my kids before even having kidsJ
My oldest daughter Kayden has been “training” with me in the stroller or jumping next to me on her trampoline as I run on the treadmill. I would love to be able for her to run across the finish line with me because I feel she has placed so much time and energy into “training” as I.
This race just reminds me of how Fit4mom has changed my life and my kid’s life in viewing health. Going to classes on a weekly basis is so much just a part of our weekly schedule, Kayden simply expects to go and workout. She is only 2.5 years old and asks to bring her own stroller and use her own band so she can do the exercises too. It brings me so much joy to know that my children will grow up knowing that working out and being healthy is just a normal part of “life”.
I want to wish everyone a good safe race this weekend and in the future as “race season” is beginning!
GOOD LUCK and Run your Best for our Children!
