Students Speak: What did you do to stay active over the summer?


As Grinnellians get back into the swing of academics and campus social life, The S&B’s Kelly Page and photographer Mahira Faran went around and asked students what they did to stay active over the summer.

“I walked to work, I went to the gym just below my office and did a standard full-body lifting workout.” — Addi Gould ’19


“The beach! I was living in New Jersey so swimming, running on the sand, being active with your friends. It was like releasing your inner kid, playing in the waves, jumping in them, running through them as they come in.”
— Dasaan McCrimmon ’19


“Every day I ran 10k and bench pressed 60 pounds.”
— Farah Omer ’19


“I live in Minnesota, and there are a ton of lakes there, so I would go roller-blading around those lakes. I love roller-blading, but I have this super old pair of roller-blades that broke halfway through the summer, so I had to stop.”
— Nicolette Musachio ’19


“I swam a lot. At the beach in the lake.”
— Rylee Beltran ’22


“I helped my dad build a large staircase outside in Wisconsin on a beach. They’re retiring soon and the backyard of their house leads to the beach but there’s no direct access, so we built a 15-foot staircase.”
— Ross Floyd ’19
