Kudos to Denver for trying to do better by its kids! Childhood obesity is a sad reality today, and it is a complex tragedy. Club sports are expensive; produce is expensive and McDonald's is cheap. I support food and exercise equality. Check out this article from Colorado Public Radio.
Also, here's a shout out to one of my personal heroes, Jamie D.! She encourages activity in kids' lives as a math teacher, middle school cross country coach, and in her ultrarunning mega-accomplishments. What an example! You are stronger than you think you are; you can do more than you think you can! Right, Jamie?
Another shout out to Chrissy F.! She's a dedicated high school lacrosse and field hockey coach, and she slays marathons. Altitude doesn't scare this goddess, nor do snotty adolescents!
Finally, a shout out to my best friend, Amy L.! Her example of bringing good health and nutrition plus fun activity to her kids' lives is my daily example.
Here's to all of us doing better by the next generation.
