My Favorite Run is the first of a four part children's picture book series on running by Fit Kids Publishing. Its goal is to provide children's picture books that will inspire and motivate kids at an early age to lead active and healthy lives.
It is a sweet story that takes you on a girl's first running journey with her Mom. During her run she learns about herself and what she can accomplish while finding the joy of running. It is about parents and children leading active and healthy lives and bonding and sharing experiences that build healthy lifestyles and loving relationships.
When I had the idea to write this book, which was inspired from a run I had with my daughter, I looked on the Internet to see what other children's books on running were out there. To my astonishment I found zero. I guess it should not have been so much of a surprise though, being that as a country, childhood obesity has sadly become too big a problem to ignore. I want My Favorite Run and Fit Kids Publishing to be a part of the solution.
Running and fitness have always been a part of my life. I’ve been a runner for 30 years. I became a personal trainer and coach and had fun introducing and converting many clients to running and fitness in general. Today I share my love of running and fitness with my two children.
I am asking for your Kickstarter support so I can share my passion in the form of this children’s book.
The money raised with this Kickstarter campaign will first go to a LARGE PRINT RUN. If we reach our stretch goal of $30,000, then those funds will enable me to continue to work on the 2nd book of the series as well as other fitness related books for kids.
If we are fortunate to go beyond our stretch goal, Fit Kids Publishing promises to take the utmost care when adding team members. Those who join the team will encompass the same passion and goal towards writing and publishing books that will inspire kids to lead active and healthy lives.
I invite you to look over the pledge levels, find what works and appeals to you.
Not only do I personally want to see this book become a reality, but I also believe our kids will truly benefit from it.
Thank you for your support!
Wishing you and your family good health and fitness.

Risks and challenges
My Favorite Run is the first book I am publishing with Fit Kids Publishing so there is always the possibility the unknown. But I have done my research and have chosen to go with an offset printing company that has been in the business for over 100 years, so I expect the printing to go as scheduled.
Additionally, as an entrepreneur and a runner my whole life I am used to challenges and the unexpected and have learned how to roll with them.
