The Spectacular Plant Based Runner

I am living proof that a plant based diet is orders of magnitude better than one that includes meat or dairy.

I took up running when I was 43 years old. It was a not too terrible transition from cycling.

I excelled at distance running. Increasing my mileage up to about 10 miles for long runs.

The thing is, I drink 4 beers most every night. Yet, still, I'm able to achieve this higher level of fitness.

I"m not fast. But I have endurance.

I've been running a couple years now. There's been some decline as I surpassed age 45, but overall, I'm still doing okay.

I've never been a stellar athlete. Even when I was young and sober. But I'm stronger now, even as I age, even as I drink. It says a lot about how our choice of diet affects our overall health.

I should stop drinking. If I did, I'd probably be superhuman.

So what could a plant based diet do for those who are already young and sober? It would probably be spectacular.

Free Topping at Dominos for Vegans

Are you familiar with the dominos 2 two topping medium pizzas for $5.99 each deal? Are you also aware that if you select no cheese that an additional topping is free of charge? I had no idea at all. It wasn't until I was playing around with the gluten free pizza online and swapping out toppings that I found out the secret. It would've been nice if their site has indicated that I was entitlted to an additional topping on my pizza because I'd opted out of the cheese.

This applies to regular pizza orders as well, not just the $5.99 deal.

It certainly makes sense, they are saving all that cheese afterall. Just would've been nice had they been more forthcoming about it. I never would've known if I hadn't been messing about with topping combinations. I discovered it purely by accident.

Dear folks at dominos, that's the sort of thing you ought to pipe up about... it makes you look good.

In case you're wondering, only the crispy thin crust and gluten free crusts are vegan.
