Hello

I used to post every so often on Vegan Fitness Forum and a place called Swimmunity, but it looks like VFF may have been totally abandoned and Swimmunity's totally disappeared, so after some searching I decided I try this place to ask questions, ruminate and vent about my running and sporadic efforts to learn to swim. I'm pleased to see you have a physical fitness subforum. There is Facebook, but for various reasons that makes me uncomfortable.



I became a vegetarian at 17 in 1975---yes, I'm "old"---was vegetarian, veganish, or vegan, at intervals, 'til about 2006, at which time I went "strict" vegan. I suppose I'm pretty much in the Vegan Outreach, PETA, Vegan Bros. camp as opposed to the Francione, Yourofsky or Vegan Footsoldier as far as what I consider "vegan" goes. I'm a 100% ethically & humanely motivated vegan with a skeptical self-interest in health veganism---I'm vegan for the animals.


I'm not a very energetic poster, but I look forward to having a little conversation with you all from time to time.

Welcome to the forum, James! As far as I can tell, this forum includes several people in their 50s, 60s, and up. I'm in my late 40s.

Hi James. I have a few years on you, but I wish I had started vegginess as early as you did. I was in my 40s, before I wised up.
