Sauk Rapids Woman Organizes Free 5Ks, Fitness Classes For Moms and Kids
SAUK RAPIDS - A Sauk Rapids woman is inviting other moms to join her in getting active. Ashley Keller organizes free monthly 5Ks - called Mommy and Me - for mothers to do with their young kids.
It's focused on you. The path has hopscotch and different games. You don't have to run. Most of it is moms walking with strollers. We don't all start at the same time. You can go play at the park, then you can do the walk. It starts at Lions Park, walk down to Municipal Park and play there, and then walk back.
The next Mommy and Me 5K is Saturday July 16th at 10:00 a.m. at Lions Park in Sauk Rapids. They're also scheduled for August 27th and September 24th.
Keller also has weekly stroller fitness classes at local parks.
Some days we'll have the kids in the stroller all of the time that we're doing the workout. Other days we'll go and meet at a playground and the kids can play and we'll do different workouts. That's a great way to meet moms too, its been a lot of fun.
She says her goal is to motivate moms to be active.
