Lean Horse 100 Mile Ultramarathon As Vegan

Postby Julberg » Mon Aug 24, 2009 12:04 am

I want to thank you for all of the great information I found here pertaining to energy, training, racing and recipies. I've only adapted a vegan life style 7 weeks ago. As I feel better, faster and stronger than ever I wasn't sure how my nutrition would play out during the race yesterday/today. It was superb! I ran in hot fully exposed conditions in South Dakota. 93-102 degrees F. I ran a 100 mile race PR: 22:36! 3rd woman ag . I ate raisins, potato/salt and hammer gel. Still in SD, I'll post to my blog upon my return. Again, thank you for the valuable input.

I would go as far as calling it unbelievable (for me, at least). Four marathons in that heat, I wouldn't stand it. Well done and glad to hear your diet is working out!

wow! congrats!
"The worker has the right to leave his boss, but can she do it? And if she does quit him, is it in order to lead a free life; where she will have no master but herself? No, she leaves to sell herself to another employer. She's driven by the same hunger. Thus the worker's liberty is only a theoretical freedom, lacking any means of realization; an utter falsehood."

Thank you so much for all of the congratulations! I appreciate it.

There were 121 entrants in the 100, with 71 finishing. The time limit was 30 hours.

I posted my report at www.julieberg.blogspot.com if you are interested in any additional details.

The next one is Javelina Jundred 100 Mile Fun Run in Arizona in October!

Julie that is absolutely awe inspiring! Congratulations!

No, I don't use a coach or trainer. I typically run 80-100 miles week; a mix of hills workouts, tempo runs, track workouts and long runs. Mostly with my Border Collie, Topaz. In the winter I switch to snowshoe running.
