Hi vegan fitness homies!

I've been vegan for five years, vegematarian for 13 before that, I ran a vegan marathon last year and should probably lift more weights.

And eat fewer delicious vegan cookies.

Welcome to the forum! I with I lived in Portland, somehow it seems more vegan-friendly than B.F.E. Illinois.
