Hey Michael, thanks for the inspiration. if i lived in NYC and if things worked out, we'd be running partners for sure. Some people tell me i'm crazy running 100+ miles a week on a regular basis, sometimes up to 150 mpw. I've only been running for 4 1/2 years but after 3 years, when i first ran 100+ miles a week for 16 weeks in winter, and again in the summer, that i broke 2:45 in the marathon. I haven't raced well in the marathon since due to heat and training but still set PR's in the 5k, 4 mile, 5 mile and 10k and won a 50k last fall. I hope to someday be where you're at in running and diet. i find it's easy to run when it's enjoyable. and on my wednesday night group runs, i bring fruit to the bar with me and some of the runners dig in lol. this is just making me hungry for fruit and wanting to go for a nice, long run lol. peace.
Hi. First of all thanks for all the inspiring videos and congratulations on creating Woodstock Fruit Festival.
I was curious whether you'd thought about inviting Steve Pavlina to Woodstock. As far as I know he's still Raw and as he has one of the biggest personal development sites I thought it might be a good way of spreading the word. Just a thought.
I have recently set up a website in dutch and english to promote the hcrv lifestyle. I have used some before and after pics of you and embedded a video of you. I hope you are ok with this. Please let me know if you are not. The websites are defruiteters.nl and thefruiteaters.com.
Thanks so much for the encouragement, I'm pumped to run another half soon! It was cool to hear about your nerves surrounding breaking through the marathon barrier– look at you now! Thanks for all the information, and congratulations on your ongoing mind-blowing accomplishments!
Just watched your video on the Leadville 100. Really fantastic, probably my favorite vid. so far. I loved seeing you and your Mom bicker about the diet, it was hilarious and made you feel so much more human, so much more one of us - dealing with disapproving or confused family members. So I just want to say thank you for sharing that.
I am also wondering if you might find the time to start a "Dear Michael" series on your blog or somewhere else where you receive letters from fans and answer a question, maybe once a week or something.
I'll start: In that video, it looked like you were eating a lot of watermelon! How do you find the time to get so many calories from watermelon? How many watermelons can you eat at one sitting?
Hi Michael, thanks so much for being such an inspiration! I want to thank you in particular for your video on wholesale fruit shopping; it gave me the courage to go visit my local wholesaler, which has really made a huge change in my life in how easy it is to live this way. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
