National Health Coach Week

Welcome to the first annual National Health Coach week. I would like to celebrate this event by offering a special gift to the first five people who schedule a FREE health consultation with me this week.

I will also be holding a raffle for anyone who contacts me this week to schedule a health history. The winner will receive three months of free health coaching!

After The Run

The title of this post applies equally to getting through Halloween and to the Turn Back the Clock family run that ended the weekend. Even without the trick-or-treating we had lots of activities and treats. My preschooler had a harvest party and my son was dismissed early as it was the end of conference week. We spend Friday and Saturday with family and friends and were glad to be able to enjoy Sunday with just our family unit.

We walked up to the local park to participate in the run. The kids had a good time and we enjoyed the lovely fall walk on the way there and back.

We spend the rest of the afternoon playing games and enjoying each others company. Scheduling downtime is as important for family health as physical fitness. Don’t we always know when the kids have had a little too much fun?

Family Run Events

I wanted to let everyone know about a couple of fun family run events coming up. The first is the Turn Back the Clock family mile, 5k, 10k and half-marathon at Rainier Vista Park in Lacey. The family mile is free this year if you sign up in person at South Sound Running. The kids enjoy the run and the finisher medal. I enjoy the family time and think of this as the only good thing about daylight savings.

The next family event takes place on Thanksgiving morning. I find this event far more in the spirit of the season than Black Friday shopping. Everyone is asked to bring donations for the food bank. There is a kids 1/2 mile and a 4 mile run/walk. Many come dressed in costumes and/or as part of a team. This year my youngest is doing the kids’ run with her dad. My oldest is still deciding if he wants to run with them or walk the longer course with me. I love this tradition and find I am much more amendable to the chaos of family holidays after the fresh air and exercise.
