It’s been a while. Just wanted to drop a quick note to mention a few somewhat recent thoughts:  

1. It’s been about a year since I transitioned to a vegetarian diet. Shortly thereafter, I took the next step and moved to a strictly plant-based diet. It was the best dietary decision of my life. As someone who used to get 2 colds per year and suffered from winter allergies/congestion, I find it unbelievable that I’ve gone a full year without so much as a sniffle. I’ve never felt better... I’m recovering quicker, racing faster, and staying injury-free for a longer stretch than ever in history.

2. I’ve been continuing to do 99.9% of my runs alone. However, last week I ran with the Ponce City Market Run crew for Global Running Day. I had a great time, and I had the opportunity to try out some amazing lululemon run gear! It felt good to run with a group, and it was a nice reminder of the best of what run groups offer.
