Guest Blogger: Carrie Gibson, PE4life Event Manager

I’m super excited to share my holiday plans as they are inspired by PE4life!  Through my years working with PE4life, I’ve been able to take what I’ve learned about the lifelong importance of being physically active and incorporate it into my personal life.

This year my family is participating in a Thanksgiving Day Fun Run sponsored by the Kansas City Sports Commission.  I’ve never been a distance runner (distance running gives me too much time to think of how tired I am J), but I am participating in the 5K Stroller Walk portion of the event with my mom, husband and two little boys.  Perhaps this will help me justify the extra serving of mashed potatoes and gravy that I am sure to consume!  This event is held each year and I’m hoping will become a tradition for our family!

I’m learning that these events are a common Thanksgiving activity (aka Turkey Trot).  You might do an internet search for one in your area.  If not an organized run, consider at least getting everyone outside for a game of football, a power walk around the block – or maybe even a Geocache scavenger hunt.  Stay tuned, as we are organizing a Geocache hunt for our family Christmas activity!

Happy Turkey Day everyone!
