I am so happy that I chose to come to CU-Boulder. There is a very strong health and fitness culture. My peers are really influential—and in a good way. Walking through campus, I see a range of active people—whether they’re climbers, bikers or training for a triathlon. I’m really excited to be in training for my first triathlon. I am surrounded by encouraging behavior, and it just makes it that much easier to get out there and try new things.
I already had a good base when I came to CU-Boulder, but my time here has helped me solidify a lot of good habits. Now they are very consistent and are something that I anticipate I will keep up forever. I would say that living a healthy lifestyle is part of my identity now.
