Yesterday I did something I haven’t done since elementary school: I played kickball. My friend Kelly belongs to an adult league in my neighborhood and brought me along to a pick-up game. I was a little nervous, but it was so much fun! While it wasn’t enough of a workout to replace my regular gym routine (the two-hour game consisted of about five minutes of sprinting and one hour and 55 minutes of sitting on the bench and cheering on my team), it did lead me to an important realization: This is why I go to the gym. Getting fit is making it possible to participate in—and enjoy—all sorts of physical activity. Anyone up for a game of dodgeball?
