Kwasniewskis: The family that runs together

Posted: Thursday, Apr 11th, 2013

The Kwasniewskis – Scott, Carla, and their daughter, Kaitlyn, assemble before running in the Polar Plunge 5K on April 6. They've all taken up running in the past year and will be partaking in the races on the weekend of the Brookings Marathon.

Last fall, Scott and Carla Kwasniewski sent off their firstborn child, Kaitlin, to her freshman year of college at Gustavus Adolphus in St. Peter, Minn.

“The day after she left, I started running,” laughed Carla, 42, and the owner of Second Glance Salon in Brookings. “I figured I could either lay in bed and cry that she was gone or get out of bed. And, that’s when I started.”

Today, with the end of Kaitlin’s freshman year in sight, Carla is gearing up to run the Brookings Half Marathon on Saturday, May 11. Kaitlin will run the half marathon, too, and Scott will tackle the Scotty Roberts 5K the night before. Son Carter, 17, and a junior at Brookings High School, will be cheering on his sister and parents.
