Our eldest started doing cross country. Until recently she has unequivocally stated her interest in running is nil. She loves to bike instead. Not long ago, however, we heard about cross country running for kids coached through Track City. Surprisingly she said she wanted to do it, so we checked it out yesterday. Lo and behold she loved it.
Good job Lily!
I have to say I think this will be a good thing. Running is great for kids if they don’t overdo it. Of course, when any of our kids do anything like this it ends up involving the whole family. We may not all be running, but we are all part of it in one way or another.
