  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:

    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!!



  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,
