New from New York City

#1 Postby AnotherHuman » Tue Aug 19, 2014 9:12 pm

Hi there!

What a great community this appears to be! I live and work in NYC and would like to meet other vegans interested in bodybuilding.

I've supplemented endurance training (three triathlons, two centuries, one marathon) with weights and calisthenics since as far back as I can remember, however have really started getting interested in weights a couple of months ago now that I have had to hold off on running (almost all cartilage is gone in one knee)--I have a lot to learn!

I began cutting out meat when I was 12, and became a vegan when I was 15. I have been on-and-off a vegan/vegetarian diet since, the vast majority of the time being on. I trained for the marathon following a high-raw vegan diet.

I would love to learn more about bodybuilding and welcome all advice. As an FYI, I am 30 y/o woman, 5'5", and weigh about 125 lbs.

:D

Hi, great to have you join us! I'm in NYC too and close to your age. I work out regularly but am not a body builder and don't plan on becoming one.
You sound like you're seriously into fitness.
