For most new moms, and mothers who suddenly realize their children need more physical activity, it's nice to have fresh  ideas on ways to get the kids moving.

At yesterday's YMCA Kiddie Run, dozens of children in their free YMCA t-shirts took to the street in a sprint of friendly competition.

From babes in the arms of athletic parents, to pre-teens at the head of the pack, the children experienced not only the heart-strengthening rush of a good run, but also comraderie and positive association with exercise.

I bet the children who participated in yesterday's event will want that feeling again.

Taking part of an organized run (or walk) isn't something I had thought of for young children before. Now I'm sold on the idea.

What do you do to keep your kids active?
