Hello from Melbourne, Australia

Postby malloryjade » Thu Jan 05, 2012 9:08 pm

Yay!! Hello :)

I'm Mallory, and I'm stoked I found this site.
I've been vegan for 7 years and am really starting to get serious about my fitness. Aside from a half marathon in April this year, I'm not training for anything in particular - I just want to be, mentally and physically, the best version of me that I can be :)

I love running and usually run every morning and am about to get back into weight training after taking a year long break (didn't pump any iron as I was getting resistance training with my sports clubs). Prior to that, I'd been going to the gym for 6yrs, on and off.

I'm excited to say hello to you all and to find a community like this.

:D

Welcome. There are quite a few Melburnians here :)

Thanks guy, much appreciated! I will definitely be asking a lot of questions I think, I've basically started from scratch today (pathetic numbers in my training log lol).
So pumped!!
