- A list of vegan running shoes. I was surprised how many companies weren't vegan actually. I've been running in Brooks pretty much exclusively as they feel great on my feet and I know all their running (not walking) shoes are vegan, but it turns out there aren't really that many other options that I know my local running store carries.
- No Meat Athlete. Probably one of the best known websites for vegetarian athletes what appeals to me about Matt's site is that it is approachable, non-preachy and full of great information. I bought his marathon training guide for my first marathon in Dublin and followed him over to RYBQ for my first attempt at Vancouver's marathon that ended in injury. I'll admit that neither of those Boston Qualifying attempts worked out for me, but that wasn't the fault of the plan or information. If you're a new runner the advice on these sites is invaluable.
- Rich Roll's website isn't one I visit too often as I mostly consume his content through his really good podcast but if you haven't been introduced to him yet then I think it's probably time you wandered over there and browsed around.
- When looking for inspiration and occasional reminders that being a vegan athlete is possible despite our tragic lack of protein I go here to this website and browse around. It's worth a read.
- Lastly two sites that I don't visit anymore but were helpful to me at one point. Forks to Feet and Scott Jurek's site. To follow Scott Jurek you're better off using social media where he posts more often, especially Instagram.
You'll probably notice I didn't list any food sites that I visit. That'll come in a separate post on the food blog, but hopefully you find some inspiration and useful information on the sites above. Also if you're on Strava and search for groups to join, try searching "vegan" and I think you'll be pleasantly surprised how many groups there are for you to explore. Happy running (or cycling, swimming, yoga, baseball or whatever floats your boat!).
