  1. Hello Vegan Bodybuilding & Fitness friends, Just letting everyone know that I'm doing a fundraiser for Compassion Over Killing (http://www.cok.net). Check them out. To raise money, I'm running in the Gasparilla Marathon (http://www.tampabayrun.com) down in Tampa, Fl. The race is on March 1, 2009! I'm still in talks with the COK Outreach Coordinator on how to go about setting up the fundraiser, but I just wanted to get the word out to everyone now.There may be a website soon or at least maybe a Facebook/Myspace page sometime soon. I've never done a fundraiser like this before and would really like to raise a bunch of money for Compassion Over Killing! Please consider helping me to make this a huge success! If you'd like to contact me about contributing, please feel free to email me at: [email protected]! Thanks so much for taking time to read this! Please feel free to repost this everywhere and anywhere you can to get the word out!! -Myke
  2. Check out Brooks shoes! They are one of the first (actually, THE first) companies that actually have a shoe that's made to break down completely in landfills. I have the Infiniti's and just ran a marathon in them yesterday! They are great shoes! As far as I know, they are all vegan as well. But look into that for yourself, because you can't be too sure about every model these days.
  3. NOFX - 45 or 46 songs that didn't go on other albums (something like that). Great 2 disc CD! Check "You're Wrong" by them as well! Great song about stuff. also, Hiretsukan. Waaaay badass hardcore type band with a grrl singer. Political and whatnot, they're on Propagandhi's label (G7 Welcoming Committee). Alright, that's it.
  4. Hello everyone! My name is Myke and I have been vegan for just one year now. I love the lifestyle, and I feel great knowing that I'm doing something healthy for both my mind and body, as well as for the environment. I was in the US Air Force for four years, I got out in 2006 and now I work as a Technical Writer, writing computer software and hardware manuals. I enjoy writing, although tech writing can get boring at times. But it pays the bills, right? I am also going to school right now, one more class to finish my AA, and then I plan on transferring to University Maryland, University College to major in who-knows-what. As for exercise, I love to RUN! I am currently training for my first marathon! The Baltimore Marathon, in October. I've been thinking of doing 50 miles one day, too! I look forward to seeing how far my body can go, it's exciting! The most I've raced was a 10K while I was in the Air Force, and that was wearing combat boots, cargo pants, flak-vest and helmet and carrying an M16! Currently I'm averaging anywhere from 7-15 miles 5 days a week, usually doing my longer runs on the weekends, when I have more time. I did weight training for a while, but I really don't enjoy lifting weights. However, I keep telling myself that I need to get disciplined and start at least a push-ups/abs/and squat routine throughout the week. The squats especially would be good I think for running, though. Anyways, it's great to have found like-minded people that don't think it's crazy to be an athlete and not eat animals! I look forward to interactions with fellow vegans on the site! Take it easy, Myke
