This year we made the commitment to start getting healthier.
We've been watching what we're eating, we've been walking more as a family, and alone, and we have been consciously making an effort to BE healthier in all areas of our life.
Once upon a time, I was a runner. This was a time before running was "cool" or "fun" or the trendy thing to do. I ran when I was happy, when I was sad, when I was mad, and everything in between. There was nothing better than the sound of my music in my ears, and my feet on the pavement, trails, or beach.
With the sport of running hitting a peak in mainstream media, as well as nationally, more and more running competitions, races, and events are popping up. Once race in particular, the Spartan Race has really grabbed my attention.
That being said, I will be participating in my first 5k this December, and while I may not be running it all (yet), it's a step in the right direction.
Anyway- back to Spartan. From hill climbing, to mud, to fire, to monkey bars, to kids races, Spartan
A friend of mine, and his son, did the one down here in the Tampa area and he said it was "invigorating". His little guy had a BLAST.
I personally think my kids would crawl up in a ball and cry.. but maybe once mommy starts doing it, they'll want to try. One can hope.. right?
