Fun Runs are a lot more fun when you have trained for a race. Therefore, it is not a one day event! Students will have the opportunity to run during recess. But, they need the opportunity to train at home as well.  Help your child set training goals, and write them down in THIS LOG. For more info, check out these websites with training tips, plans, and goals for kids: HERE and HERE.
