I love...

I love that my 3-year-old tells me she's busy texting her coach when I ask her to do something.

I love that when I come home from running, my kids ask me if I got a medal.

I love that if I take my 7-year old out for a run, she asks "are we running 5k?" And if I follow up with "What's a 5k?" She immediately answers with "3.1 miles."

I love that after I take my 2 older kids to school, the first thing out of my 3-year-old's mouth is "Are we going to the gym?"

I love that if I need it, my kids know the 3 possible locations for my Garmin.

I love that after a race or long weekend run, my kids know to bring a movie and crawl into bed with me so I can chillax for awhile.

I love that if my kids witness me eating something new, they ask if it's good "fuel" for a runner.

Our kids are watching us.  The best way to teach them that exercise is fun and healthy and positive is to show them through our actions.
