My wife and I try to model healthy and positive behaviors before the ever watchful eyes of our two daughters. Our number one goal is to help they grow up to be individuals who are complete in the following facets of life: mentally, emotionally, spiritually and physically.
For me, from a physical perspective growing up, neither of my parents lived active lifestyles. In fact I don’t recall my mom or dad ever throwing a baseball, football or Frisbee with me and forget about running!

GOTR is a fabulous non-profit program based out of
that seeks as its stated mission, “To educate and prepare girls for a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living.” Charlotte, NC
Our 9-year old was eligible for the GOTR program and she has been training since late September with other classmates for a 5 kilometer (3.1 mile) race that was held this past Sunday. Check out the pictures of her accomplishment!
Here’s the GOTR web site http://www.girlsontherun.org/default.html if you’re interested in seeing if it might be appropriate for your Tween-age daughter or school. You won't regret it and neither will the little ladies in your life!
