    I think there are ways for schools to introduce running in a way that makes it fun for kids. My daughter has participated in a program at school, since she was in kindy, called “Kids Run The Nation.” It’s an 8 or so week program where they learn running fundamentals and spend time running (it’s afterschool for an hour or so, once a week). It finishes at the time when there is a local race (5K/10K/half) that has a kids 1 mile run. She has done it for 4 years in a row now and really enjoys it. I think that kind of a program can instill in kids a love for running because it’s voluntary and not punishment.
