I just successfully pieced together a BWV std studio stay for January Marathon weekend (YAY!) and it will be me DD7 and DD12 running. Both of my girls are team dancers and are physically fit, but aren't runners yet. I've never done a running event, but I've been in kickboxing class for a few years now and do a bit of running there. We have plenty of time to train, but I'm wondering if I should start them with the one mile and run with them there or just go ahead and do the 5k. Has anyone done both? Do you feel one is better than the other, especially for kids? Thanks for any advice!!
