Kids Rock America - it's an awesome program! I can't think of anything bad about a program that gets kids up and running, teaches to endure, has awesome sponsors, encourages healthy habits, etc.
I love race morning - I get so excited and I know that rubs off on my kids. Were there days they had no desire to run? Absolutely, but once they committed to do this (meaning I paid for it after talking to them and making the decision together, of course), I pushed them to finish. Do I think they want to run just to please me? Because the know I love running? Sure - but is that so bad? We did this last year and loved it and I'm so proud of my kids for doing it this year.Rock and Roll Marathon Series.
