Cheryl started running at the age of 11 and ran throughout middle school, high school, and college, where she earned a scholarship to run cross-country at Transylvania University. Cheryl continues to run as a way to stay healthy, provide stress relief, and to be a role model for her children. Cheryl shared her love of running with her daughter Grace, who is in fourth grade and recently joined a Girls on the Run team. Grace also loves playing soccer and is looking forward to learning how to ride a horse. Today, Cheryl and Grace will talk about why they love being active, ways they get moving together, and their tips for other families who want to be active!
