    3. Rochester, NY

  27. Oh my goodness those shirts look so incredibly wonderful!

    1. What is your #1 tip for fitting exercise into your life? -Find an accountability partner. If you have someone meeting you at the gym or outside that’s ideal, but even if your friend just asks how your workout went at the end of the day you’ll be a lot less likely to skip out AND you’ll get to brag about your efforts πŸ™‚
    2. How long have you had your oldest piece of exercise clothing (that you still use)? -I have a sports bra that I have had for a good six years… it has been on its last limb for a while but I just can’t seem to part with it!

    3. Fairfax, VA

  29. 1. Get my sports bra and shoes on while I’m still all groggy and confused in the morning, because by that point its just too much work to change my mind and get changed into something else.
    2. I have a pair of fugly but oh so comfy running shorts that I, uhm, accidentally stole (oops) from my high school track uniform. That was only 4 years ago, but I’m pretty sure the school bought them in the 70’s.
    3. Boston, MA

  30. 1.
    What is your #1 tip for fitting exercise into your life?
    How long have you had your oldest piece of exercise clothing (that you still use)?
    What is your hometown?
    BALANCE.. writing it down and making it seem like something like a habit like brushing your teeth.
    Probably 5 years.. gross.
    Home town is Saco MAINE

  31. I love that t-shirt!

    1. Find something that you love to do, no matter what it is, and commit to doing it every day.

    2. Oh man. I’ve had this shirt since I was a junior in college…in 2000. It’s a Hind zip up, and I can’t imagine doing anything without it packed in my bag.

    3. My hometown is Charlevoix, Michigan!!!

  32. 1. Fitting exercise into life: treat it like eating, sometimes enjoyable, sometimes not, but must be done–that means scheduling it, but just like eating (if you miss lunch) you will make it up somewhere and somehow that day. You might have to be flexible and grab some thing (like a protein bar or banana) and the workout might turn into 10 minutes of calisthenics…BUT you will do some thing!

    2. Oldest piece of exercise clothing: Are you ready for this? I have bike shorts that I still wear, from 1985!!! (Blackbottoms)

    3. Ione, Oregon Yeah, find that one on the map…

  33. *I want to stay in my size 4 jeans and eat my junk food, so I have to get out there and burn those calories, but it’s easy to do because I LOVE IT.

    *Some shirts that are 5+ years old that still smell funky after a good washing.

    *Fairbanks, AK! -50F degree temps. this week!!

  34. (1) I just do it like I would do anything else that I have to get done. It doesn’t get pushed out just because I’m busy.

    (2) Oh god. I have things from high school. T-shirts and even a sports bra. Ten years old!

    (3) My name is Heather and I represent the Ocean State. Born and raised in Providence, R.I. (I felt like announcing it in a Miss USA voice).

  35. 1 – I have to schedule it in, otherwise it just doesnt’ happen.

    2 – The oldest piece of exercise clothing that I still use is still from the very beginnings of my running career (6 months!)

    3 – Home is now Kansas City, but I’m originally from Canada and officially claim Calgary as my hometown.

  36. 1. Wake up eeeeeaaaarly!
    2. My first race shirt!
    3. Omaha

    My advice for fitting in exercise- if you only have 1 minute, do jumping jacks for a minute. think of all the spare minutes you have! you can get it in throughout the course of the day

    Kelly Turner

  39. To fit in exercise i do squats or lungers during commercials,waiting for my oatmeal to cook or shower water to heat up, or do crunches and pushups. i did calf raises at the gas station once! i wake up hella early as well so i’m done with my exercise way early!
    4 years- sports bras. yeah, nasty i know.
    i’ve lived in sherman oaks california for 8, 9 years, but i was born in metairie louisiana! yay!
