Often times as athletes we want our children to participate in the same sports as we enjoy. We start to feel the desire to get them active in the sport at a young age. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that as long as it is done in a healthy way. Today, I am going to share with you three tips on how to get your young kids interest in running.
Show them by example
Kids learn a lot and are greatly influenced by observing. If you want your kiddo to be interested in running show interest in it yourself. This means go for a run, take them in a stroller with you, and talk about your runs. If you aren’t a runner yourself get them around others who are running or take them to a race to watch. Your interests will likely rub off on them.
