Facts About Me

  1. After about 21 years of being vegetarianism I went vegan at the age of 30. I saw through the lies of the dairy industry.
  2. I teach Geography to teenage boys. I love it.
  3. My favourite running books are Mud, Sweat and Tears and Born to Run.
  4. I live in the UK in East Sussex close to the vegan heaven of Brighton. I know I am lucky.
  5. I love to cook and read about food. One of my favourite cookbooks is Vegetarian Hearth 
  6. The first blog I read about veganism and running is No Meat Athlete. I read through the entire archive in a few days.
  7. I have run a couple of marathons and am now training for a 50 mile run along the South Down Way.
  8. I run with my wife (the lovely Mrs Herbifit), a Collie and a Terrier. All three can outrun me. Easily.
  9. I have three chickens from before we went vegan. They have destroyed my garden. In the future we will house rescue chickens. Our neighbours get a lot of eggs.
  10. I think veganism is simple. It is wrong to cause needless suffering. We don’t need to use animal products. Using animal products cause suffering. It is wrong to use animal products. People don’t like it when you point this out.
  11. I have recently discovered the joy of cross-training. Yay Boxercise.

My answer to Vegan Life’s questions

1.  Yoga or Pilates? Pilates – but I am terrible at any kind of stretching.

2.  Book or movie? Book! Always. having said that I would love to see ‘Born to Run the Movie’.

4.  Ocean or lake? – Either. As long as I get to stay on dry land and look at it.

5.  Run or Bike? – Run. Last time I got on a bike I hurt my back and couldn’t run for two weeks. I’ll never forgive it.

6.  Acai or gogi berries? Gogi berries. In my malt loaf recipe.

7.  Scuba dive or Sky dive? Not by bag really. Scuba if I had to chose but I’d rather not.

8.  Morning or evening? Either. Dawn and Dusk are the best times of day for a run on the trails.

9.  Ski or surf? I’d love to try cross country skiing.

10.  Australia or Europe? Europe. Lets cut down on the carbon foot print 🙂
