In today's "Fit Kids First" we profile a young runner, a very young competitive runner who's already learned  all  the right reasons to stay in shape.

The annual Hollidaysburg Area YMCA Turkey Trot began under frigid conditions Saturday morning and while you can't see him in this crowd of 700, there was one competitor here for his first race.

Five year Andrew from Hollidaysburg told me he trained before this big day, but it was his first race and bib number!

He stretched and had Dad help with his laces
And felt confident he would finish  "Good!" 

And when asked why run and stay in shape?  "It gets you healthy!"
A short 20 minutes later, here came Andrew.
First race is now under his belt.
How did it feel Andrew did you like it?
While he didn't give me a thumbs up,  his Mom told me he ran like a pro.
