I had no idea how much of an influence my journey towards health and fitness had on my little ladies. Munch and Skeeter are my biggest cheerleaders and my most ruthless personal trainers. After getting in an abbreviated two-mile run the other day due to a thunderstorm, my girls insisted that we do a few hills. We live at the bottom of a hill, so I run this hill as my warm-up. After a fast run, I did not have much energy left in my reserves at all, but their enthusiasm was contagious. Munch was able to run up the hill and down the hill like a gazelle. Skeeter ran halfway up the hill and then demanded to be carried up the rest of the hill and back down. She wanted so desperately to keep up with her big sister. Now everything has become a race in our house – a race down the stairs for breakfast, a race out the door, a race to the car, and finally a race into school. When I realized what an impact my running had on my girls, this made my heart so happy. Never underestimate the power of your actions on your children.
