My name is Rebekah Boos and I live in Lakewood Ranch, Florida. I am a vegan and an animal lover. I am also an avid runner. I have raced in many half marathons, 10k races, and 5k races. I have even medal placed a few times in my age group. I wanted you all to know that I will be running in my FIRST marathon this Sunday, January 29th in Miami!!! The reason for my discussion is not for bragging rights but for any of you to relay to others that as vegans, we get our nutrition and then some!!! Many are are skeptical about a plant based diet and feel that it is not possible to live up to our athletic potentials as vegans. I vehemently refute this fallacy. I am 38 years old, in the best shape off my life and have successfully trained to run all 26.2 miles this Sunday! I am happy, healthy, energetic and ecstatic!!! I will keep you all posted as to my results.
Have a wonderful day!!!
