NO MEAT ATHLETE Workout/Running Group

Uploaded: Oct 27, 2014
For those who might be interested, Matt Frazier has initiated local chapters of the No Meat Athlete Running Club which is a fitness/running/social club for plant-based and veg-curious folks, demonstrating that you can be strong, physically fit and quite active without eating meat (OMG, where will they get the protein...find out where.) There's a Palo Alto chapter with a handful of folks so far that just started up. They are meeting every Wed at 6:30am at the Stanford Track by the palm tree at the entrance to the track, for some stretching, a track workout, pushups, burpees etc. Open to all levels. If you are interested or know someone who might be, just show up and/or join the facebook group. They are looking for input as to how to make the group successful. There is a social aspect after the workout that is being worked out too. PLEASE NOTE: No Meat Athlete groups are a free, public fitness movement and workout leaders are not necessarily certified fitness coaches.
We need your support now more than ever. Can we count on you?

Hi Max,
As a vegektarian who can't eat soy, wheat, oats, barley, or pea protein, and don't eat eggs, I would love if you woukd post some options. I supplement with rice protein but it has naturally occurring lead or arsenic in quantities high enough to deserve a state warning. And I'd love if the protein wasnt by supplement...

What do you call a vegan who eats fish (but pls don't ask a vegan, I get enough grief as it is).

Hi Pescavegan: Thanks for your comment. Not being an expert on nutrition, I must refrain from making any suggestions for what you could be eating. "Pescavegan" sounds like it takes care of the label you are looking for for a vegan who eats fish. I will make one suggestion if you do eat fish: stay away from the bottom-feeders.

The new No Meat Athlete workout/running group is open to discussing a time that might work better for more members (so far we have had only two people come the past two weeks to meet at Stanford track on Wed at 6:30am. - NOTE: with the clocks being set back, 6:30am is already starting to get light...) If anyone wants more information or would like to let us know what time/day would work better for you, you can respond to this post or email me directly at [email protected] - MAX
