Getting My Boys into Running

The past few weeks Noah and I have been running together! Noah turned 9 this summer. He is a pretty fit kid. He has practically no body fat and he's pretty strong. However, his endurance is not the best. He started soccer this past Sunday, and because we've been running together I could really see the improvement in his stamina.

We started off just doing 1 mile 3 times a week and now we're up to 1.5 miles 3 times. This is in addition to all the running he does during soccer 4 times a week. I'm so proud of him!

I can tell the running bug has bitten him too, because he's ready to go as soon as I walk in the door after getting home from work. 

"Are we running today, Britt?", he eagerly asks already waiting by the door in his New Balance running shoes. "Yup, let me change.", I reply.

I love it <3

Do you have someone in your life that has recently found their new love of running?
