I was sick for pretty much four weeks after getting home from Florida. What started out as an ear infection turned into a sinus infection. Four years in college and I never had more than a little cold. WTF. While I was resting (couldn't really run with a sinus infection, especially since I read online that it could turn into pneumonia if I did!), I read a lot of blogs. I've been reading some of these for a while now. Some are vegan, some aren't. It's always better to keep an open mind.
The videos on this site profile vegan athletes. There's everyone from professional cyclists to ultrarunners to baseball team mascots (the cutest). I'm inspired by each and every one of the athletes, even if they're doing something I'll probably never do. I'm super excited to see the creators of the show, Matt Ruscigno and Sasha Perry, speak at Vida Vegan Con in May.
I like Courtney's voice and attitude towards running. I also love that she's in DC because that was always my favorite city and where I saw myself living as an adult (haha, that's definitely changed).
Pretty much every one of Kelly's posts make me LOL. That's enough to keep me reading. I really appreciate her honesty about running and her tips about good gear (found out about SPIbelts from her blog, they're amazing).
I just recently found Lacy's blog and I've already read through about 25 pages. My favorite thing about this blog is Lacy's emphasis on body positivity and acceptance. Although I don't have a history of eating disorders, I think the content can be helpful to any woman who's felt shameful about their food choices or just uncomfortable in their skin. I don't know if that's generalizing too much though. So I'll just say I love this blog. Lacy is also speaking at Vida Vegan Con!
This blog offers helpful info on vegan nutrition. Of course it's affiliated with the Vega company, so some posts are obviously trying to sell the product, but if you're not vegan or don't use their products, the info is still super interesting. One of my favorite posts is about what to eat the day before a half marathon.
This is probably the first vegan fitness blog I ever read, for obvious reasons. I used the half marathon roadmap for the Princess Half. I used the training plans, but didn't follow the food plan/recommendations (other than already being vegan, obvs). The food plan is geared towards people who aren't already vegan and he suggests a smoothie and raw salad to be the anchors of your diet. I definitely focused on upping my raw veggie intake, but couldn't get on board with the smoothies. I'm thinking it might sound better in the summer. I really like the running inspiration found on the blog. Some of my favorite posts are this one, this one, and this one.
