Recess is a great way for kids to get exercise, but what about grownups?

It would be nice to have Recess too.

Fleet Feet held what it calls a Recess Run for kids of all ages Thursday night. There were relay events, leap frog, Simon says, and even a game of kick ball.

Fleet Feet crew leader, Becky Jackson said, "We are only going to play for an hour, an hour 15. We are very mindful that it is a school night, we want the kids to come out and play with us. We know they have homework and bedtimes so we are going to try and keep that in mind and keep the games as brief, fun active and let them go about their business."

Jackson said one of the key reasons behind the Recess Run was to get people in Green Country moving, and get the state of Oklahoma off the list of the most overweight states.
