I am training for the 125k Canadian Death Race and hope that adapting a more raw diet will help improve my performance.
Confession time. I'm vegan, low fat, but not raw. Up until about 3 or 4PM I am generally raw, however after that I enjoy cooking with my fiance. Always vegan however. I feel the time is right to give being a true LFRV a shot. My fiance is on the other side of the state working as an academic camp counselor for 6 weeks and I will be in deep training for the Death Race.
Mike Arnstein is a huge inspiration for me. I am all for the environment and animal rights. Those were actually the initial reasons I became a vegetarian 7 years ago. However this experiment is purely for sports performance. I would love to lean up for the Death Race, and if LFRV can improve my mental and physical performance, I'm all for it ;)
I hope to post daily updates on training and nutrition, as well as thoughts along the way. I want this to work out, but it will be a challenge!
Thanks for your current and future support along this journey.
