Stalled Out, Coast, and Restart

You know when you're just chugging along down the road and you look up and have no idea where you are and where you are going? You do? Good. That has been the past 8 months of my life. A little over a year ago I did my 30-Day Experiment by going vegan and running.... 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 →

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 →

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: Mid-Week 2

Clearly, I'm not going to write 30 separate posts throughout this experiment. I want friends at the end of it all. Instead, I'm just going to post some random thoughts as I go through things. Something occurred the past couple of days that I have found interesting. When I enter a grocery store, I actually begin to... Continue Reading →

Dealing with the Trombone

Have you ever seen a trombone? It's pretty darn unwieldy. There is only one moving part on a standard trombone and the sound is produced by the buzzing of the lips into a metal mouthpiece that the elongated open tube amplifies into a beautiful tone. Or at least it should be a beautiful tone. When looking at the trombone,... 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 →

30 Day Experiment: Day 3

Well, after reading the comments from the previous post (Day 2) I took Gary's advice and went for a nice long bike ride today instead of running (to let my feet relax a bit). However, I like to use my bike to DO something. It's fun to ride, don't get me wrong, but I feel... Continue Reading →
