Well lets see.........
My name is Randall
I have been vegan for about 10 years now.
I just recently moved to Portland about 6 months ago from
Orange County, CA with my girlfriend Michele who is also been
vegan for 1 year. As far as my training goes, I have done some different
things on and off. I started out young just lifting, and then a while after that progressed into Jiu Jitsu for a couple of years. Then for financial reasons I had to stop. I would say this point was when I was in the best shape of my life. I was playing tennis in High School and doing jiu jitsu 3-4 times a week. I weighed about 215. This is where my weight loss goal is focused right now. I would like to get back to that weight, and physical ability. i.e. I have always struggled with my flexibility, but for that short period of time I was doing pretty well. I am still pretty young, almost 23 and I just started doing jiu jitsu again and would like to lose weight to help benefit my game. Let me start out by saying my cardio is HORRIBLE. I can barely run 3 blocks without gassing.
Right now I am at 275 and would eventually like to get down to 215 maybe even 205 if possible. I would like to be down to 225 by the end of the year.



Anyways enough about that,
Here is some personal info.
I am an environmental science major in my second year at Portland Community College
In my free time, I like to troll the internet, train jiu jitsu
read (chomsky, howard zinn, peter singer, etc etc...) listen to music and watch movies, and MMA Fights.

Here is a pic...

Welcome Randall!

Great to have you here. You'll find all kinds of great information, motivation, and cool people to be in touch with.

Awesome to seen another person in Portland. We should get together sometime.

I hang out with loveliberate, davidtarrfoster, and andesuma on a regular basis up in Portland, as well as with many other vegans who will hopefully soon be on the forum :)

Anyway, all the best with training and everything else and welcome aboard!

AWESOME!!!!

Yeah, we do tons of meet-ups all the time up here. We have dinner, go to restaurants/hiking, and just hang out.

Check out the Vegan Vacation Threads at the bottom to see all the people from this area.

There are a bunch of us.

We'll be in touch.

Robert
