Run, Baby, Run

 

This piece in this weekend's New York Times is sure to irk some know-it-all parents. 

Although none of my kids are nearly as competitive as these two girls, my middle dude has done trail runs (he beat me at the last one we did in June) and recently ran his first 5-miler and his first 10K.

What I find funny is that the parents who know all would likely never consider scolding parents who let their kids eat junk food and play video games all weekend. I'm pretty sure childhood obesity is a bigger problem in our society than kids who exercise too much.
