Hi,<br><br>
I'm new here. I have followed a primarily vegan diet for the last 5 years, but I haven't succeeded as well as I would have liked. I let cravings and other people influence my food choices and for the past 2 years I have eaten meat and fish often. The past few weeks I have had a renewed passion to go back to a vegan diet and have succeeded. I'd like to move towards a more raw vegan diet over the next year or so.<br><br>
I am also a runner and cyclist and have done 4 marathons. I am currently training for my 5th. I'd love to hear from other vegan/veg runners/athletes too!<br><br>
I live in Iowa (midwest USA) where it is rather difficult to be vegan. There are no local vegan/vegetarian groups around here and I have only met a couple of other vegans at our local health food store. There are a couple of Indian and Thai restaurants and they are the only veg friendly places to eat here.<br><br>
That's enough for now, I hope you all have a great day<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><a href="http://cdn.veggieboards.com/a/a9/a91e6d29_vbattach434.jpeg"><img alt="LL" src="http://cdn.veggieboards.com/a/a9/525x525px-LL-a91e6d29_vbattach434.jpeg" style="width:132px;height:429px;"></a>

I'm into fitness in a big way, so I'm always leading myself deeper into it... and whereas I have yet to run a marathon, there are people who do run marathons here already, so I am kind of<br><br>
using them as inspiration, and I hope you too can be inspiring in some way also as I'm sure you are just by the fact you are trying to stay commited/loyal to veganism!!!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thumbsup.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":up:"><br><br><br><br>
