If you lead a kid with an owl they can run a mile, if you teach them to run they'll chase the owl.
The Hoot Scoot is such a great event to help our public library, the kids had a blast running, chasing, eating, dancing and hanging with their friends. They've decide to become regulars on the 5K circuit, I never ran as a child but ended up on the varsity cross-country team in high school and I come from a large family of runners, marathon runners, ironman runners and triathletes so if genetics plays a role these kids will or in the words of Forrest Gump:
Mama says they was magic shoes. They could take me anywhere.
Even if we don't like to admit it most of us are guilty of quoting Forrest from time to time, it really was an inspiration movie and some of it even took place right here!
