For a family that loves 5K races, we've sure taken some time off :-(
but we are back and stronger than ever, ready to tackle this Houston Texans 5K! Our son is very excited to run with Toro, Texans mascot in the fun run, so I'll make sure that I take lots of pictures!
Running is sort of a family affair in our home. We all love it, even our three year old! We run as a family, stay active as a family and we will, in a few weeks, race as a family!
I will push our little man in the stroller, while my husband and son run side by side! They love running as a duo, and our son can keep up! He ran the golf course the other day while I rode my bike...he stays focused and has a gorgeous stride...as only runners would appreciate!
I am very proud of him because as I've said before, we don't pressure him or force him to exercise, it's by choice and I truly believe that from watching his Mom and Dad, he WANTS to run, bike and be active. Something that makes us so proud!
**And if your family doesn't love to run, then find something...anything you can do together to BE ACTIVE! Sometimes we forget that just getting outdoors and playing with our children will keep them ACTIVE and MOVING. We all have busy lives, but I promise if you make the effort, your family will make memories that will last a lifetime. And your children will develop healthy living habits that they can take with them for years to come!
And after our race day, we're sure going to have some smelly workout clothes which leads me to a product review that is a MUST HAVE in every laundry room,
I keep forgetting to share my Downy Unstopables experience with all of you,
Downy was nice enough to send the "Fresh" scent and although I haven't tried the others, Fresh is my favorite! Super fresh and clean scent that keeps our workout clothes and towels smelling great! You literally want to sniff your laundry while you're folding it! Yea, that good!!
I'm pretty sure Shimmer and Lush will smell great too but that Fresh scent during the cycle, smells fabulous! I'm really funny about smells that are too strong or smell fake-if that makes sense but a little sprinkle added to your wash will do wonders...I promise! I use Unstopables with all of our workout gear and all of our towels, I've even sprinkled it onto the boys' clothes to add freshness to their loads!
and these "Tea of a Kind" flavors arrived in the mail today for us to try and if you haven't heard about these, check these out here. I'll be sure and share our experience with these drinks, very soon!
Do you have a race scheduled this month?
