Hi All,

Well only a plant based vegan for around 3 weeks. Decided that I need to get off my ass and do something. On 9 different prescribed medications per day. My first goal is to do a marathon in early November 2013 and then the big one: Comrades next year. (http://www.comrades.com/)

Looking forward to learn from the forum. :D

Stats:
Weight - 115kg (254 pounds)
1.8 m tall
BMI of around 34.

Wow, what a great goal! As a runner myself I am familiar with Comrades, in fact I was listening to one of the Talk Ultra podcasts last week and they had Bruce Fordyce talking about the race, that guy is a living legend and truly inspirational.

All the best with your goals, hopefully you can start up a training journal so we can all follow along with your progress. I'm sure you will settle in really quickly here, it's a great community full of friendly people MF.

Thanks MF! Yeah Bruce is a living legend in the sport. I have met him a few times. Very nice guy and always helpful!

I will start a log under running. What started me to get back into running after many years was reading the book from Scott Jurek. Also a serious legend in my book. Currently busy with Rich Rolls book. Starting with my marathon training program on Monday! Let the fun begin!!

Sounds like you are reading some good books, I am reading Jurek's one at the moment and Roll's is next for me to read!

You'll probably also like a book by a guy named Marshall Ullrich, he ran across the States. That was a cool read!
