    I am an eight year old boy, living in Morgan and I want to start running. How do I start, I would like to run 200 meters and 400 meters. I would eventually like to run a 5k.

  2. That’ great that you want to start running! I think the best thing for you to do would be to start gradual. Maybe only a half of a mile to a mile a day for a little while and then when that starts to feel pretty easy you can start going a little further. Don’t worry about running every day, there’s plenty of time to build up to that so if there’s a day you don’t want to run, then don’t run! Keep it fun for you! The key is to not let it become a chore.

    I think it’s very important to make sure and develop all the muscles in the body. You can do this by playing outside with your friends, playing other sports, riding your bike, swimming, tumbling, hiking, basically anything active! So don’t be afraid to do other things besides just running. As you continue to run you’ll be able to do 5k’s and many other races sooner then you think, so when you feel ready go for it!

    Good luck! Also, if you’re interested, I know that Ogden has a youth track club that starts at the end of May or beginning of June which would be great to get involved in! Alydia Barton is the name of the lady in charge of it.
