Thousands of Central Texas elementary students ceremonially began the Marathon Kid’s program with a trip around the Mike Myers Track and Soccer Stadium on the University of Texas campus Saturday morning. The kids will complete a full marathon in 1/4 to 1/2 mile increments over the course of the next four months as part of their exercise program in area schools. The kids are encouraged to eat healthy over the course of the marathon and log their miles for a celebratory final-mile gathering in February.
