When David was deployed, he started running - a lot. He ran in several 5Ks and even the Marine 17.75k run. Unfortunately, the active lifestyle he became accustomed to became less active once the kids and I showed up last summer. Then returning to life at home - it became even less active. However, we've recently made some changes and forced ourselves to be less sedentary.
We've gone on several family bike rides and I decided to take a photo of us after one this evening. David actually decided to run with Gianna in the stroller while the kids and I rode our bikes. We were hot and sweaty, but had fun. Spencer did fall and get a rather nasty cut, but he made it through the rest of the ride with minimal complaining.
We want our kids to be active and stay active and the only way to do that is for us to teach them. And what a great incentive for us to be healthier!
