Baltimore Vegfest 2014!

Standard

I attended the Baltimore Vegfest yesterday, and I was not disappointed! Many food vendors, animal rights groups, and nature preservation organizations were there, along with vegan beauty products and jewelry companies. There were speakers sharing their experiences and knowledge about veganism, and the event was pet friendly, so plenty of dogs were seen having a great time in the sun. One tent even brought dog treat samples!

The event was on a college campus, so it was pretty crowded! I had the most delicious samosas (pictured above), and two, yes two, black bean and beet burgers.

Getting to the event was about an hour and a half drive for me, but I enjoyed to overall tone and vibe of Vegfest and would attend again. It’s great to see people come together over such great causes and support each other. Go to one in your area if you can! ✌️

I’m doing it! Although my diet is pretty clean, I still want to drop some weight and make sure I’m getting in enough cardio in addition to the strength training that I do.

I found an app called C25K Free that keeps track of the jogging and walking intervals, which is awesome!

I’m no stranger to the elliptical or
treadmill, but for some reason I have been really intimidated to run in public. I’m really looking forward to being able to run 3.1 miles nonstop!

Are there any runners out there with advice?
