The physical benefits of running are evident and have been well documented. If you want to lose weight, hit the treadmill – it’s simple. 

Three-time Olympic gold medalist Steve Lewis, Olympic and World Championships silver medalist Sandra Farmer-Patrick, former world record holder and two-time Olympic bronze medalist John Powell and Atoms Track Club founder and coach Fred Thompson were inducted into the National Track & Field Hall of Fame last month.

If you are like most runners, you are busy juggling work, workouts, family, and life. You likely eat meals and snacks on the run, grabbing an energy bar here, a frozen meal there, and a protein shake to go. You can easily fuel yourself with highly processed foods that are ready to heat and/or ready to eat.

Goals are part of youth running. There are classroom goals, like tracking on a map the miles run during recess, a journey to a landmark or across the country. There are goals built around earning awards, the finishers’ medal, or the T-shirt or water bottle. And, of course, goals set by a coach or parent for the child to aspire to; a faster time or completing some run, or winning a trophy as the best team in some local race.
