I Qualified for States!


Whenever I get the changce to point out that vegans are good athletes, I like to do so.
On Friday, I qualified for the Connecticut Class S State Championship Meet in the 55meter dash and the 4x200meter relay with my team.


In the 55m I qualified WITHOUT blocks, because the meet organizers wanted the meet to run faster so we couldn't use them for the trials.I ended up getting 7.9s, but with blocks I'm sure I will improve upon that time.


In the 4x200m relay, my team ran 1:98.2, which is really good considering the meet was poorly run and the third leg runners (lucky ol' me) were not told where to receive the baton until the second leg runners were on our heels. Either way, I'm happy just to have qualified with my girls!


I'm a little disappointed that they cut out the 300meter dash to speed up the meet, because I was only 0.2s away from qualifying the last time I ran it, and I cut 0.1s off my 55m from the previous meet! Oh well, there's always next time!




So, do you have any athletic accomplishments that you are proud of? Leave a comment and let everyone know that vegans kick butt :)

congrats! there are more and more vegan athletes out there destroying the ol "you need meat to be healthy" farce. I myself bike to work and home everyday, my job being a very physical one and I still have energy for hiking and yoga when my work day is done.

Thank you! Its great that you can exercise and help the planet at the same time, especially after working hard every day. If I could I would bike to work, but I work nights and my job is over ten miles away.
Cheers!

That's really awesome that you're a vegan sprinter. You don't hear about many of those! I prefer distance, and I could never do the 55m. So I give you props!
