This weekend is the Big Sur Half Marathon, along with the 3k and 5k races! There are few things as impressive as watching wave after wave of racers go by in a big race!

Heading out to the race route to cheer on runners is a great way to spend the morning and show your children how fun fitness can be. To get them in the spirit of the event (and to give the racers a good laugh!), have them make a sign to hold while they cheer!

For little ones, write the saying on the poster and let them decorate it with markers, stickers, glitter and other art supplies. For older children, have them copy the saying onto the poster themselves. Runners LOVE to read these as they go-it really does make a difference in helping them complete that grueling 13.1 miles!
