The Spectacular Plant Based Runner
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.
