The Girls' 1st Race!

Fitness is a large part of my life. It has been for the past 10 years or so when I lost almost 40 pounds!

I would love to pass along to our girls the love of exercise and teach them to love being healthy and physically active.  
{Note: I do NOT want to teach my kids that being "SKINNY" equates to being healthy. I will probably never be skinny/model thin and that is perfectly fine with me!}

So, when the girls' gym coach told us about the Red Nose Race, we signed up right away! Our city had a hugely popular adult marathon and some local businesses sponsored a smaller race for the kids to participate in the same weekend. 

 Warming up before the race. It was a cool morning, but turned out to be a nice, fall day!

 My husband ran with Ce Ce and I ran with Em. For some reason, she didn't feel like running with the bigger kids.

What ways do you incorporate fitness into your lives?
We would LOVE to hear about it!
