    I 've always been really sporty especially football i'm crazy about Manchester united.i remember when i was young i used to play football with my friend in the afternoon, because we lived a village and it's a rather poor village so we had not enough money to rent a sport hall or a 5-side-football but we had good ideal ever that we played football on a field after harvest , to me that was the best field i have ever played we didn't really care about for who wins the important thing was we having a laugh with some good friends and we played along time a match until the sunset went down and that was a great time but i never forgot, now we are mature people , some people working overseas , others married people so it is very difficult to gather together ,one day i hope we will play in a field again and getting a beer afterward..thanks for reading this my comment

    I've alwasys been really sporty, when i was in my hometown, i always playing basketball with my younger brother. There is no better feeling than when you doing sports with your families. we are thus become so close. I also like some individual sports like jogging, maybe one day i will tyr the marathon. Now we are having the quarantine time, so i usually doing yoga at home or some diet dance. I enjoy the tired feeling after the complete movements. I can find the achievements of exercise and feel so confidence~

    I am not that into sports, to be honest. You can see that I am not very athletic and I find watching sports rather boring. That said, fitness and staying healthy are very important to me, that's why I go running and do yoga regularly. I go for a run twice a week or so, sometimes in the park near my place or in the gym when the weather is not good. Mostly I go by myself, but occasionally I run with my husband. I do yoga by myself in my living room most mornings, but sometimes I go to the gym with a group of other people, because it's more fun and the instructor can help correct my postures. Some people do sport to socialise, others may love to compete, but for me the most important thing is being active and staying in shape. I don't really enjoy it, though I don't mind it either. Exercising always feels more like work than something fun.

  21. Vladimir Jakovljevic 1 year ago

    I am really into sports from the young ages. I have been playing football since i was 5 years old and i really enjoy playing this game. When i was younger i played for a local club. We trained four times weekly and had one or two games. But nowadays, i just play for fun with my colleges from the work. We consider playing football as the most important team-building activity we have. We usually play a 5 on 5 game, but tomorrow, we will be playing a 7 on 7 game because some guys from our sister company will join us. I also watch football, usually with my brother or girlfriend. I am a fan of Serbian team Red Star Belgrade, but i also sympathize Liverpool and Dortmund.
