Yo! New and from Seattle!

#1 Postby alienpeapod » Fri Jul 28, 2006 9:06 pm

Hello All!!

I am truly inspired by this forum! I was vegan for four years. When I got into bodybuilding and fitness, I stopped being vegan. I was worried that I wouldn't be able to gain muscle and lose bodyfat. BUT recently, I have become vegan again and am ready for the challenge and inspiration of eating HEALTHY and VEGAN. When I was vegan in the past, I lived off junk food: tofutti cuties, toast, cookies etc...

I am into long distance running, and try to run 7 miles, 6 days a week. I also do weight training. I do a three day split. Though I enjoy weight training and would like to gain more muscle, my heart is in running. I am starting to do races (5K..) and want to start training for a half marathon.

I am interested in connecting with other vegan athletes, especially runners and those who live in the Pacific Northwest. I am also interested in lowering my bodyfat and dropping 5 more pounds.

Shout Out to Y'all

Peace!
Andre.....

Hey, HI back to you all.

I would love to go to the Vegan Vacation in Portland but I have prior commitments that week.

I was just down in Portland and had a blast though. I went to Cafe Vita at the end of Alberta Street. They had amazing vegan fare, plus I could order brown rice and veggies for breakfeast. The Alberta Street Co-op was great too.

Maybe there could be a Mini Vegan Vacation in Seattle since Seattle is a Vegan Mecca as well.

Anyhoo...

Heya,
I think a Vegan Vacation or some similar gathering in Seattle is a great idea! That said, I'd love to see our next Cascadian Vacation/gathering go down in or near Vancouver, BC. :D
