College runner

posted over 2 years ago | Report

Hello I'm a busy college student looking to get back into running regularly. I'm at school or one of my two jobs for around 85 hours a week, so I would love some motivation. After finals I'm gonna start slow with a C25K program. I would love a few DM friends- other beginners or college students would be great but I could use advice from more experienced runners as well! Thanks for listening.

  • Welcome and FR sent! Anyone feel free to add me as well. I can always use the motivation :)

  • I'm a professor, and it's not any easier on this side of the podium. I just ran my first 5K on Saturday, and it was a blast! Keep working at it and making the time! FR sent!

  • Hey Kayla! I feel you - I'm "taking a year off" from undergrad but still taking classes and working two part time jobs. I started running about 6 months ago and I totally understand how hard it is to balance hours of exercise with sooo much work! Good luck with finals!! College is an awesome time to start running. :)

  • Also a college student. I started running last summer and did my first couple races for St. Patrick's day this year. I'll be a senior as soon as finals week is over :) FR sent!
