Wow--the response to the lectures I've presented this spring on being a vegan athlete has been amazing! Clearly the topic of fine tuning our diets for sports performance is of interest, likely in part due to hubbub around films like James Cameron's The Game Changers, and the forthcoming book by vegan ultrarunning record-breaking Scott Jurek.
It's been a pleasure talking about the potential and pitfalls of choosing this lifestyle, and I've fielded some fantastic questions.
Those in attendance have ranged from long-time vegans, to new vegetarians, to those just curious about this diet and lifestyle. I met new runners, a couple ladies pursuing a half-marathon in every state (they even have plans for the boring states!), and runners of all ages looking to raise their game.
By popular demand, I'm hosting this talk ONE MORE TIME: Join me at TriSport Junction in Sykesville on Wednesday, April 18th, and let’s talk about the plant-based athlete! RSVP HERE.
Questions I'll be sure to answer include:
- Will going vegan make me faster?
- Do vegans recover more quickly?
- Will I have to supplement?
...and the big one:
- Where do vegan athletes get their protein?
Hope to see you on the 18th!
