    I ran cross country and track in high school and college. I still run 5-7 days a week. In my spare time I like to play basketball the most, but also enjoy soccer, football, ultimate frisbee, pickleball, and just about anything else. I have a teaching certificate in physical education/health so I hope to teach/play sports for a living.

    So do you run competitively now? My training regime is similar to you before the exams for about 50 to 60 miles per week. During this month I become quite lazy in training due to exams for my final year mathematics in Cambridge.

    I normally run marathons or ultras but I still do 5K/ 10K/ 10M shorter races.

    I've mostly done road races since college, but I'm planning on doing some open track meets this summer. I'd like to get some new PRs in the 800-10k while I'm still young and capable of moving fast before moving up to 1/2 marathons and marathons.

    Soccer and running. I try to do soccer as much as possible but now that I'm going to college I'm just going to stick to the occasional pick up game

    My view of running is similar to you. Completed my first marathon at 12 but it was really slow since it took me over 4 hours. Then I did a 100 mile race last November and realise that I have some speed so I now focus more on shorter distance. I have a dream of running circumnavigation when I get older. The below is my final goals and I know these are tough.

    5K 14:30; 10K 29:30; 10M 49:00; HM 65:00; Marathon 2:11:00.

    These are my current personal records for each distance.
    5K 16:22; 10K 34:11; 10M 57:12; HM 75:48; Marathon 2:37:00.

    To be completely honest? I'm a fan of parkour, golf and skating.

    To me, parkour is a great way to exert stress that i'm able to do. Although it is completely rough and hard at first. It just becomes apart of a persons nature to climb ^^

    Anyone and everyone should be able to play golf, in my opinion, just because it is a game that you can play for the rest of your life.

    and finally, skating is just a way of life for me.

    I don't think i've actually done a sport in my free time since i transferred from my first college. At my first college i did a bit of intramural football, and in high school i was an all state football player, and briefly a soccer player. Since then i don't really do sports in my free time. Pretty much all i've done out of high school is weight-lifting. I weight lifted off an on for the past two years and have really started to get back into it over the past month (worked out 28 days out of May this year). Usually i'll do 30 mins of cardio then do high sets of pretty much every exercise imaginable to round out my fitness regimen.

    I play basketball downtown most every day. Not much else to do in a smaller town so when we can get big crews to come down we get some nice 3 v 3 tournament type games going. Also if going to the gym to lift is a sport than I also do that on the daily. Last summer a bunch of friends and I organized an Ultimate Frisbee "league" of some sorts and it was pretty intense, don't think we have enough people around anymore that are willing to do it again though unfortunately.

    What's a sports? I haven't heard of that Pokémon.

    In all seriousness, I box, bike, play chess and other strategy-based board games, play tennis, and I am on a middle school Robotics team.

    I've gotten into disc golf lately thanks to my brother. I also play football and basketball with my friends sometimes.

    Not that it is really a sport a such, but I tend to do a lot of yoga and aerobics in my free time. Sometimes if I'm free I'll go swimming on a Saturday. We used to have a pretty big swimming pool in my town but now it's more of a fun pool for kids. There's a decent one a few towns over, but I rarely have the time to travel there on a Saturday.

    I used to play tennis competitively for a while, but I gave it up to finish my A-level in Psychology and then my two year Health and Social course at college. I could go back and play competitively but I haven't really had the time to get back into it in that way. I was always better at doubles than singles though :S

    I like to go for a biking at times. It's nice to pedal around the neighbourhood and listen some music, especially if the weather is nice.

    Football (of the soccer variety), rugby and swimming. I used to play ice hockey when I was younger but it's a hard sport to keep up with in the UK.
