As runners we know that nutrition is 60% of the battle out on the pavement. The wrong food, at the wrong time could be the difference between feeling great or feeling miserable during your run. There are so many options out there that it can get overwhelming at times. If you’ve ever considered going on a plant based diet or switching to raw vegan but have been worried about how it will affect your running, here is a great opportunity to learn more about how to incorporate it into your life and make it work for you.
Raw Food Central in Berlin, CT will be hosting Tim VanOrden; athlete, coach and motivational speaker; to talk about how he has brought a plant-based diet into his life and made it work for him, all while excelling at what he does.
“Tim VanOrden is shattering the myths and misconceptions that surround a plant based diet. He has spent the past ten years proving that a vegan athlete can excel in some of the world’s most grueling sports. Along the way, Tim was named “U.S. Masters Runner of the Year”, four times, and he’s garnered ten U.S. Trail Running Championship titles at 10k, 15k, Half, Marathon, and 50k. In addition, Tim has finished top ten in the world championships of stair climbing, snowshoe racing and mountain running.”
