Rock a fit tennis shoes
Throughout the 2014-2015 school year our Kids Rock school teams have been gearing up for spring training season. In preparation for their training, we asked our team captains what activities they like to integrate into their school programs to help promote fitness and healthy living. For a period of 3 weeks our captains shared inspiring, fun ways to get their students excited for the big race day on April 26. We rewarded the top ideas and are excited to share them with everyone.

When a student signs up we call out their name in class and then we place a tennis shoe with his/her name on it and place it on the wall outside the gym for everyone to see. (Picture above)
We also include a list of students name with grade and place on the wall outside the gym – this way the students can see what grade is in the lead as we announce what grades have the most student’s signed up!
Students receive a necklace and tennis shoe tokens for their mile and on the final celebration day we give the 26.2 token to each student.
On our celebration day when we hand out the students bib numbers we have popsicles for the children as a reward as well.
Edmonson Elementary -
The school “theme” this year is having all the participating kids complete a “what’s your hashtag.” The students will decorate and write their #hashtag (something related to the marathon, running, being fit, etc.)
Beside the printed hash tags we made for all the kids (1/2 sheet of paper)….we will hang these in our gym, displaying all the kids participating and all the cool hash tags they come up with.

Our team is getting ready to start our Saturday morning training runs. Team members will have 10 Saturdays offered to them for training runs. We meet for one hour and our goal is to complete at least two miles during each training run. Most members complete more than two miles. I break up the training run day into two halves. For the first 30 minutes the members run/walk. We focus on proper stretching, warm up, pacing, cool down, and proper nutrition.
