Healthy Kids Running Series

Fostering a love of exercise the outdoors and healthy self esteem is something every parents wants for their kids.  What is difficult is finding ways to introduce it to them that are fun and age appropriate.  When your kids still are not old enough for many programs through school, this a big responsibility left on the parents.

pageimage-ourstart Introducing the Healthy Kids Running Series, a fun interactive way to get your kids excited about running and healthy living!  Both of my two children registered for the Healthy Kids Series this year and are really loving the experience.

If you are interested in learning more about the Healthy Kids running series and would like to look for a location near you please take some time and visit the website at  But if there is not one close by you can always take your kids outside, lace up their running sneaks and on your mark, get set, GO!!!

    This is a terrific series. Anything that helps show kids the value of fitness and health is so worthwhile.

    My boys did this series when they were younger and LOVED it. Great way to get kids invested in their health early on in life. Thanks for sharing on the Wellness Wednesday link up.
