From Liz: As we travel, we take time to exercise with the kids in the afternoons. And recently we stopped at Goshen College’s track in Goshen, Indiana. While there, I encountered a woman jogging with her two young daughters. They were running a mile. The woman explained her daughters would be competing in the Fitness Health Festival in Fort Wayne. Throughout the summer they have kept a log of their miles. They are running the equivalent of a marathon, 26 miles and will receive a “gold medal” when they complete it… In an age when it’s sooo easy for children to be television and video game couch potatoes, this kind of thing is such an innovative way to get kids exercising. And I believe a “gold medal” should got to mom Jean Mounsithirag for sowing the seeds of family fitness.
