Coincidentally I’m on the plane with this chick right now, as we make our way to RUN DC! This will be her first half marathon and I’m so excited for her! Regardless of what happens at the race, we’re bound to have a great time. P.S. special thanks to Kimmy, my intern turned personal assistant, who made my ridiculous DC restaurant list in a specific format, and Madelynne for her off-the-charts, insanely helpful recommendations. We’re so excited for our trip!
Introduce yourself: I’m Devon, or Dev, a 22-year-old, senior at UCSD, living in PB, lover of hairless cats.
How/when did you first get into working out? My freshman year in college I moved away from the Central California corn-fed/farm lifestyle and moved to Southern California, where fitness is like “the thing.” I also stopped swimming when I moved away and instead started going to the gym and lifting heavy weights.
Weekly workout schedule?
Monday & Friday mornings I do Core, Cardio, and More at 24 Hour Fitness. Wednesday mornings I do cycling. Tuesday’s & Thursday’s I work out on my own. I usually run night-time, like 8:30pm or 9pm, and usually Monday, Wednesday or Friday (not Tuesday or Thursday because I have school).
Favorite workout at the moment? Stair Master, oh yeah! I’m so good at it now. When I started out I could only do 10 minutes, but now, I can do 45. Boxing is also a close second to the Stair Master. And maybe “Flirty Girl Fitness.”
What’s your favorite go-to healthy meal? Recently I’ve been really into ground-turkey stuffed peppers.
Favorite indulgence? Chocolate milk and late-night drive-thru mexican food, Vallartas.
When I wake up I…hit the snooze button 5 times. Eat a Nutri-Grain bar and drink a big glass of milk (after, of course, I greet “Muscles,” my stuffed cat/pillow from Ashleigh).
What are your goals for this year? Run outside with a sports bra on and feel comfortable.
What’s your biggest struggle in living a healthy lifestyle?
Probably living with a roommate that doesn’t care about being healthy. Who makes good food like pot-pies. Working at a restaurant.
Best tip for leading a healthy lifestyle? Don’t give up when you don’t see instant results.
