hehe....so true, so stereotypically Portland! But the cool thing about Portland is being stereotypical isn't bad! I have seen the dragon boats practicing lots of times, it's really fun to watch. I think I'd like to try it someday!

I know we have more athletes out there from a variety of sports. What do you guys/gals do other than lift weights?

I just started basketball season again so I'm doing that. I've taken a break from table tennis but still love to play, and on occasion I'll play some soccer.

Share with us :)

Hah! I wish athletic vegan girls were typical of portland.

Meanwhile Dodgeball starts back up for me Jan 12. That'll be fun. I used to play pickup football and soccer and sometimes kickball but lately I've just been running...

running track, but also road races..

will do a 10 mile next month, but normaly not longer than 10k

i like 1500mtrs, but in winter i go for a bit longer distance. Because i like the change, but also because there are no short races in winter.

water polo (umm...duh...that's why I joined here!!!), competitive swimming, skiing

YES!!! I get to do swim AND play water polo at the same time!!! WOOHOO!!! (I start in March!) I love swimming, it's almost insane.

I'm fairly good at skiing,too, and would ski race (I sat down with my mom and went over my schedule: Mon: water polo, tues: ski, wed: water polo thurs: ski, fri: swim, sat: ski, sun: water polo) but she wouldn't listen. "Two sports is already too much!!!"

I'm SUPER competitive, seriously, the only reason I'm in algrebra (in eighth grade) is the fact that I wanted to prove that "jocks" are smart!!!

Aaaaand, if you take algebra as an 8th grader you can start with geometry as a freshman, take AlgII sophomore year, trig/pre-calc Jr year, and Calc sr year, then not have to take math when you get to college :D (at least not as much, depending on your field.) That's what I did!!!

Computer programming for me.

I never have been big on many sports, except I used to love playing Dodgeball and Kickball when I was a kid, and "Manhunt" or "Freedom" would always allow me to break a sweat, and sometimes I'm found playing Dancing games in arcades/malls breaking a sweat, if that counts as a sport.

I'm actually not a bodybuilder at all - just can't find any mountain biking vegan web sites :o so here I am.
Besides biking, I like trail running, soccer (played for my college), Tae kwon do, hoops, whatever. I'll do/play any sport.

finbarrio,

You should start a Vegan Mountain Biking Thread in this "Other Sports" section and maybe you'll find others who do the same 8)

All the best,

-Rob

I'd be into moutain biking if there were any mountains near where I live!

I ride a trail built on old train tracks around here a couple of times a week. The closest thing we have to hills on it are the trail brides that go up over the highways

I've been a sports nut for as long as I can remember.
I played University soccer, made the university volleyball team (but declined to play....seemed a bit too serious and I wasn't willing to sacrifice my studies). I used to be a competitive curler too (what can I say...I'm Canadian :wink: )
Unfortunately, I blew out my ankle playing soccer and I haven't been the same since...lost 6 inches off my vertical jump (thus ending most of my aspirations) Can't play many sports with lateral movement now, so I did some long distance running (did a marathon and a few half marathons...of course my body rebelled against all that wear & tear too)
Now I'm taking up bodybuilding, which should be a significant challenge (always been a bit of a hardgainer)

Sometimes I wonder if I couldn't put my energies to better use, but doggone it........ sports are just sooooo much fun!!!! :D
