Vegan Nutrition on a Budget

When I was training for my first half marathon a little over a year ago, I was broke and lost about how to feed myself while doing long runs. I needed to get the most bang for my buck, and as someone who had spent their adulthood scared of carbs, I was confused. Carbs or […]

Chasing the PR Might Be Killing Me (But Setting Goals Keeps Us Alive, Right?)

My next half marathon, the Rock’N Roll San Diego half, is in 5 days! It will be my fourth 13.1 mile race, and I’ve been training hard to get a sub-2, which means running it in under two hours. I came close last November (it’s now almost June) at the Rock’N Roll Vegas half with […]

I have been giving both my best, and at the same time, being kind to myself and listening to my body. I completed a half marathon right before marathon training; in my mind […]

Britney’s Running Playlist (and now yours too)!

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 […]

Photo via BlacklistLA “Running REALLY has changed your life, hasn’t it?” – Erin Clemens (my sister) I’m on my way to an LA Marathon training program orientation that my running club, BlacklistLA, is hosting.

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 […]
