Last year the kids and I got into running. I completed two half marathons (one with a P.R.) and the kids joined a cross country team. Kirsten and Cruz ran their fastest mile time (Kirsten - 9:01, Cruz 9:27) - and Katanya did too but we don't have on a written record. McKay and Kirsten and I ran our fastest 5k (3.1 miles) times with McKay at 24:09, Kirsten at 32:35, and mine at a 26:27.
This year Jacob has finally joined in. I'm not sure if he is doing it for fun or more for the actual exercise. He hasn't been very happy with the pounds that his desk job has added (although I still think he looks great!) His work is having a "biggest loser" competition and he's doing it to encourage others.
So we are a running family. To go along with our new header, here are our favorite athletic shoes:
Amy: Saucony and Mizunos (depending on the run &/or exercise)
Just remember, "Always earned, never given!"
