Race Day thoughts

Since this was my fist major race, I really didn't know what I was getting into on the brisk, nay FREAKIN' COLD morning of November 3rd. I was a tad nervous to say the least. As the time got closer to the 8am start, the temperature didn't rise like I was hoping and I couldn't... Continue Reading →

Run a Half Marathon…Check!!

I just got home from running, and finishing the Monumental Half-Marathon! According to texts my friends received (and then sent me), I finished in 2 hours, 11 minutes and 51 seconds! This race was cold, kind of dreary, and crowded, but hey, I finished it! When this all started I wanted to run races as... Continue Reading →

It’s Here!

The half-marathon I have been training for is right around the corner, and I'm pretty excited about it! I'm also excited that I'm doing this as a Plant Powered runner! Speaking of Plant Powered, I got my 'No-Meat-Athlete' long sleeve shirt in the mail last week and have been proudly wearing it on the final... Continue Reading →

Taper Week + Fun Gigs!

Well, here we are. The week before my first half-marathon and I gotta say that I'm pretty excited about it! This week is the second of two taper weeks, meaning that the milage is less than previous weeks. It kind of feels weird only running a few miles instead of 7-10, but it all leads...

First Speed Bump

Well, I've had my first speed bump with my running this past week. Since I've been ranting about the ISO Musician Lockout (Part 1, Part 2, Part 3) , I haven't been writing about the running so much, so let me re-cap a couple of weeks here: Two weeks ago, I was supposed to do... Continue Reading →

4 Weeks Finished

I know, I know. I haven't been writing much...er, I mean, I haven't been writing AT ALL! So sue me. I've been in a fog recently. Yeah, I've been pretty lazy about keeping up on my running/vegetarianism blog, but what can I do. I'm writing NOW, so enjoy it. Despite not writing about it, I... Continue Reading →

Game On!

It's official!! I will be running the Monumental Half Marathon on November 3rd here in Indianapolis! The race is exactly 12 weeks away, so my No-Meat-Athlete Half Marathon Roadmap will be perfect to get me ready for 13.1 miles! Now that running a Half-Marathon is 'real', it is kind of daunting! I've never run more... Continue Reading →

The Challenge

I recently began reading the "No Meat Athlete Half Marathon Roadmap: The Vegetarian Guide to Conquering Your First 13.1" by Matt Frazier. Before the book gets into the training program the first Chapter is all about 'Making It Real: Goals and Commitments'. In this chapter, Matt asks you questions and you have to answer them....

Time flies…

Wow. Time really flies when you're avoiding doing things. It has been quite a while since I last blogged. I have gotten started on several blogs, but just put them in the 'Drafts' folder. I felt as if I didn't have anything interesting to talk about, but I finally realized that I have yet to talk... Continue Reading →

30 Day Experiment: Day 4

Day 4 into this no-drinking, vegan eating, exercising every day, and things are progressing quite well I'd say. My energy is up, I never feel bloated (nor hungover which is nice) and I'm having fun trying to make new dishes and even experiment a bit in the kitchen. Am I missing the dairy/cheese/meat/alcohol? Surprisingly, not... Continue Reading →
