Some good advice mojo. But I think 10 is late,
. I was rasied by a T&F coach and was running races a lot younger, all in fun though. I've already had my kids in races and their not 5 yet.
If you want your kids to be interested in a sport get them to participate early. At a younger age it seems like a lot of fun, so they are more likely to enjoy it at an older age. But, i agree with mojo don't take it seriously, let it be fun.
