Variety of works

Running While Sick

It is February 24th and the Los Angeles Marathon is March 19th. I have been sick three times since November, so as you can imagine, training has not been going to plan. I have run 18 miles, all at once! That’s progress. But I have skipped out on numerous training runs with my run club, […]

Since my teen years, I’ve been running off and on. It hasn’t been until recently that I’ve upped the distance past 5 miles, and stuck with it long term. In high school I was on the swim team, and on weekends I’d work out at the gym with my dad, using the treadmill or stair-stepper, plus weight […]

Hello world!

Get ready for our blog about veganism and running! We’re Jenny and Mike, two vegans who also happen to run, and fell for each other in the midst of it all! We were Instagram friends who had bumped into each other a few times over the course of a year. I (Jenny) was impressed by Mike’s […]
