Families do all kinds of things together. We laugh together. We eat together. We worship together. We travel together. We go to movies together. We work through problems together.
Today, we tried something new for the first time: We worked out together. The three of us climbed into Sue’s van and drove to the UND Wellness Center, where I ran around the track, Sue worked on the treadmill, and Carl lifted weights. Although we frequently do these activities by ourselves, today was the first time we all exercised at the same time in the same place. We even asked an employee to take a picture of us as we were leaving.
I hope other families give exercising together a try because we (I?) had fun. Family exercise night has a nice ring to it, wouldn’t you say? I am proud of my family for so many reasons and now I have even one more!
