ABC News' Lisa Chinn reports:

Wearing black Converse tennis shoes, black pedal pushers and  the omnipresent cardigan, First Lady Michelle Obama hosted several Washington area school children for some outdoor exercise on the South Lawn.

In remarks she gave to the assembled group of kids wearing “Let’s Move” t-shirts, she asked them to make a promise “that you will do your best to get that 60 minutes in every single day, and that you will find other people in your family and your schools and encourage them to do the same thing."

What followed was a good 30 minutes of structured play and exercise with help from Washington area sports teams conditioning personnel.  Mrs. Obama participated with the kids, running in relays and giving out “high fives.”
