Liberty Run with the Family
Dr. Len Lopez – Wednesday, July 23, 2014
The other day, on the 4th of July, we did the Liberty Run here in The Colony Texas. It was the first time, my whole family got to run. My three little ones and my wife, Melissa did the One Mile Fun Run….while yours truly did the 5K.
It was a beautiful day for a run by the lake, even though we didn’t really run by the lake, although the 10K may have had a chance to run by the lake.
I wish I could share all the pic’s, but I did pick out a few. I especially like the picture that was done of me and my littlest one running. He’s a hoot, he liked hearing all the roaring and cheering he was getting as we came through the final stretch.
Looking forward to the next run we can all do, although they are not that good about waking up early to go run. I know my little girl is already asking to run the 5K with me. Not sure when that will happen, but it will be fun when it happens.
Hopefully one day they will be as good as Grant Fisher, my cousin’s son who was recently nominated for the Gatorade High School Athlete of the Year. FYI….He was invited to the ESPY awards and walked the red carpet.
This was the third run my twins have done, but was the first time for my little guy to run. If you’re looking for a good way to get your kids involved in exercise and fitness look for some of the Fun Runs in your community.
