    I wish I had been fit in college. Thankfully I have been affected with AOA (Adult Onset Athleticism)!!

    I held my own in college, especially freshman and sophomore years. Junior and senior years I was deep into working a part-time job, studying for upper-level classes, and in a serious relationship, so fitness tapered off some. Grad school (+ 45-minute communte + “grad school poor” + new marriage) is what killed me though. Zero time for working out — or it wasn’t a priority. Come to think of it, I started running 5Ks in grad school…

    I’m finishing my last year of college, and while I’m not a beast, I’ve been steadily progressing towards being more fit and active. No regrets here! I’m trying to take full advantage of the awesome resources available while I’m still in school.

    I had to walk everywhere–I didn’t have a car. I started on a really small campus but I had to walk 30 minutes each way to get anywhere off campus, including my grandma’s house (where I could access free food and coffee!). Then I transferred to a gigantic state university and EVERYTHING was a long walk from everything–there were buses, but often they were full or waiting for them would have made me late for class. I had a 5:45 a.m. job that was a 20-minute walk from my house, etc. I did get chubby when I first moved in with a roommate whose parents sent goodies, but once I moved off campus and had to walk farther, it dropped right off. I took a weight training class for my gym elective and am still using those principles of lifting today…25 years later. I wish I could go back and tell my instructor that I did finally succeed in doing unassisted pull-ups.
