Kids Love Running

Kids nowadays are hooked with gadgets which parents mostly tolerated them because they’re too busy doing homework or working. Letting the children as young as a year old watch on Ipads. Apparently, they’re the one buying for the kid.
Imagining them deprived on things. Kid must do playing, running, exploring and to be with their friends.
That’s why schools are now giving programs that could let the kids do to their potentials on mental and physical activities and explore themselves and even understand themselves.

Communities especially on running sports where parents are very active and letting their children do a marathon. But before letting your children run a marathon, consider the do’s and dont’s and better get a coach for them to be properly trained.
Well, it’s not all about running. It’s about getting them out of the house walking, chatting and befriend to others. Why percentage of the people are fearful, depressed because they locked up themselves.

 

Getting Ready for a Marathon

Every runner’s dream to run a marathon – may it half or a full one!  Others anticipated in getting their goal. But what exactly is your goal? Finishing the line, it may not be the first but still on top? Or just to finish the marathon “the hell, I care” first or not?

We always hear this, you wouldn’t be a so-called RUNNER if you haven’t run a marathon. Or you were just simply telling the others that you are a runner! Does it justify everything?

For every intention to run a marathon, you should have plans. Musn’t be a single option but make it 2 or 3. If the first and second would not take the way it planned then you have the still option to take into. Plan-A-B-C.001.jpg

If Plan A didn’t work, you still have Plan B and C. And with this, won’t burn yourself out thinking of what’ve gotten wrong or see it as a simple test to yourself! It’s just evaluating you, to sum up, or lessen something that your body could endure.

Re-assist yourself:

  1. Race distance – try the best you can achieve (half or full) or a (5k or 10k).
  2. Race season ( if you can do it in winter or in summer) – consider warmness and coldness or what your body could endure.
  3. Race Gear – before anything else 🙂 Get yourself  comfortable suits.
  4. Racetittude -always wear this! Be POSITIVE.
  5. Race Budget – basic as it is. For your overall training.

Why Ragnar Relay Races?

Simply, an all year round event to different states, that’s one big thing! But the main challenge is the 200(ish) mile relay races and the process from start to end. It’s not simple by just registering yourself on the race especially you’re on your own. It’s a shared run!

But the FUN part is searching or convincing people to be in your group or looking for a group that has a slot for one – and that’s YOU! And what’s the big part? – is to show off you (YOU): sportsmanship, ability, capacity and competitive! And meet a new set of friends.

RAGNAR is a team sport that is an opposite of being a “runner” as supposed to be an individual sport. Where you can experience diversity from what you used to. Vans, costumes, cheering, and most of all less sleep to the point on “NO sleep.”marathon-gif And from  all the miseries are the FUN part – to be in the race, a certainty of a FUN to a new level. Sharing with friends and having loopy conversations to other teams. dgykd

I know things got you stoked which makes you ask: What was I supposed to packRunning (Reflective Vest) in the dark?  How much do I have to spend? No sleep, it’s that a fun part?

For all of the apprehensions and to and fro, running RAGNAR is an incredible experience and one that you MUST have! It’s not being slow or being on the first or the money. It is how we made it on the finish line with the team not letting anyone behind. Winning on how the process came to SUCCESS!
