"I am plant-based. Essentially, this means I don’t eat anything with a face or a mother. Animals find this agreeable.
I’m also an ultra-endurance athlete. Essentially, this means I don’t go all that fast, but I can go all day. My wife finds this agreeable.
Conventional wisdom is that “vegan” and “athlete” simply don’t get along — let’s call it irreconcilable differences.
I’m here to say that is utter bullshit.
“But where do you get your protein?”
Not a day goes by that I am not asked this question. If I had a dollar for every time this came up, everyone in my family would be driving a Tesla."
