|Subject: ||RE: New Dad here--how do I get my kids to become (great) runners?|
One of my sons was a very good high school and college runner, the other was a pretty good high school and college runner. I was a mediocre college runner and a pretty good masters runner. We let the kids to just about every kind of sports camp when they were young. They did swimming, soccer, tennis, basketball, volleyball, surfing and a couple of other things. I let them run with me when they wanted to run with me. They ended up gravitating to running on their own, and their competitiveness was internally generated, not the result of my or my wife's pushing them.
The best way is to give them lots of opportunities and let them make their own choices
