Kristen Skaugen leads the Healthy Kids Running Series in Enola, PA. After her child ran in a nearby Series, she started a local one in Spring 2015 and has clearly loved it!
“Who are you?” What is your background with your family, community involvement, and running?
My husband and I are both cross country and track & field coaches at the local high school. I ran track in HS (Bible Baptist School) and college (Slippery Rock University), and have coached at some level since I graduated – track, cross country and basketball. Currently, our sons are involved in community youth sports programs – soccer, basketball, wrestling, baseball. My husband and I both have enjoyed participating in races from 5ks to marathons as well as a few triathlons.
I am floored at the community involvement – both by the kids that participate, the parents that bring them, and the volunteers that truly do the work to make it happen. We have gotten to watch kids beat personal bests and see their joy in that accomplishment, as well as learn how to enjoy healthy competition between competitors.
