    Nooooooo definitely not. I workout 4-5 days a week, and go on hikes/walks etc a couple times a week, but my husband is a surfing machine - surfs before work and on his lunch break and goes to the gym 4 days a week on top of that, and my sister is a triathlon nut who is in hardcore training mode at all times. I'm pretty lazy by comparison!

    Nope - my closest friend is my running and hiking and gym partner. I have several friends who are runners. My brother runs a lot. And my boyfriend hikes and runs and works at the gym and mountain bikes. I like to hangout with active people.

    Not even close, lol. 5-6 days of half an hour on the treadmill makes me not the least active person I know, at least!

    Family - yes. My family is pretty sedentary. Friends - no. Most of the people I know are runners or long distance hikers. Some aren't as active as they were when I met them, but then, neither am I. The runners I know are all younger than I am, and do a lot more racing than I do, so a lot more training.

    No.

    I work in an office with a lot of active people, and I am a member of a cycling club with a lot of accomplished cyclists.

    I'm up there among the active ones ... but not the most active.

    Given that I used to be in serious training for the 'World's Most Sedentary Person' olympics, it's a really odd feeling to read this thread title and realise that... I might be?

    The friends I used to think of as 'really active' have all become less active over the last few years due to life changes. And I've become someone who works out three or four days a week and regularly hikes fifteen miles.

    Oh, wait! No, one of my work colleagues does martial arts and ultramarathons. I think I still have something to aim for :)

    I think I fall somewhere in the middle. I know alot of sedentary people but also a lot of active folks. What makes me happier than being more active than people I know is the fact that I am definitely more active now at 46 than I was at 36, and probably more active than i was at 26!!

    Among my family, yes. Among my social circle, not by a long shot.

    Last year, one guy in the group who is an ultra runner applied for and gained entry into the Grand Slam (four 100 mile trail races), completing two of the four, as well as completing a full Ironman during an "off' month. This year, two of the guys are finishing up training for their third full Ironman race in 12 months, while 3 of the women have run Boston qualifying times in various marathons. So the idea of "most active" isn't very descriptive in this case. Most members of our group enjoy endurance training and racing, so it has become a lifestyle.
