Hi! It’s me again, the newish runner mom, and I am back to talk about a few things I have learned while running with my little guy…
First, your arms are going to look great! Pushing an object that weighs more every time you run with it (kids are always growing) is a great workout!
Second, stay positive. Kids are constantly looking up to their parents and wanting to be just like their parents. Fitness is very important in maintaining a healthy lifestyle and taking them along with will set a positive example.
The last thing I learned to not take it too seriously because the kids won’t. Have fun, I just go with the flow and forget about even setting a goal. Just run. Soak in the time you get to spend with them. Peak in that little window on the sunshade and play peek-a-boo. Just laugh and have fun with it!
I also have some very exciting news! I am starting a running group for parents who would like to bring their little ones with them! It starts up this Monday the 21st at 6:05pm at the Yankton Trail Park right off of 57th St. I am looking forward to meeting other running parents!
