Ran the Boston Marathon today. First marathon as a vegan
and PR'd with a 3:27:52. Had some friends say that they should try veganism if it helps make them faster!
Pretty tough course with the hills, especially coming from Chicago, but ecstatic! Plus, training didn't go as wanted since I was injured for a couple of weeks.
I've only been a vegan
since February 1st and as planning on using it as a trial for 3 months, but I have no plans to go back to being a vegetarian even if it makes travel more difficult. Had a complete breakdown last night since Whole Foods here didn't have vegan
pizza, so had to settle for something else. And, was having problems with my leg. But, it all worked out in the long run!
So, could you please add me to the list? Also, I did a half marathon in March (1:38:11) as a vegan
. Improved my time on that course (tough and hilly, but good tune-up for Boston) by 5 minutes!
