So I finally did it! I finally signed us up! About a month and a half into this beachbody workout program I started to incorporate running. My 5 year old son and I run for approximately 3 miles in our neighborhood at least twice a week. At first, he had no idea what was coming to him and it was difficult for us both but I have to say, we’ve both become quite good at running. Wouldn’t it be nice if we did a 5k together?
It would, but I haven’t found one yet. The closest I found to a kids’ run is South Miami’s Twilight Run sponsored by Teamworks. I’ve done this run before, years ago before I even thought about having a child, and I really enjoyed it. Why not share the experience with my kid? The Twilight run has an event called the Kids Dash which takes place after the adults of completed their 5k where after the adults have completed. The kids portion of the race is only 200 ft. We won’t be running together as I hoped to do, but it will certainly serve as some bonding time as well as nice experience for us both. So I did it! I signed us up. And I am super excited about event day.
