Over the weekend my family and I walked The Color Run in Englishtown, NJ. I would have loved to run the 5K instead of walking, however my husband and I joined a group of friends and our children to walk together as a team. I am so glad we did. Eventually we will run some races without them, however this particular event was fantastic for families and I was amazed at the amount of children excited to exercise (and get pelted with color). How do you implement physical fitness as a family?

Why I Am Running Indoors (For Now)…
The treadmill has been purchased and set up. My husband and I chose a model that folds up in order to hide it away. It now resides in the closet in my children’s playroom with a bungee cord for reinforcement (because I am paranoid that way). Why start on a treadmill when the outdoors are way more economical and much more interesting? Well, I live in a mountain and prefer to start indoors until I am ready to tackle the hills of Hopatcong. One step at a time. I absolutely plan to eventually hit the great outdoors by the beginning of fall when the humidity in New Jersey lets up and is more predictable. Who am I kidding!? The weather in New Jersey is never all that predictable.
Let My Running Journey Finally Begin.
After a few bumps, hiccups and small tantrums, my running journey can commence. Thank you runner’s havenin Randolph, New Jersey for helping me out with the right shoe. Pictured is the Brooks’ Women’s Adrenaline GTS 12. Wish me luck and helpful advice greatly appreciated!
