How did you hear about the Boulder & Beyong vegan meetup?


What made you decide to go vegan/ explore a more compassionate lifestyle?

Mainly health reasons, after researching it a bit I feel that a whole foods, plant based diet is the most ideal diet and I want to be healthy and fit for many years, as well as have the highest level of athletic performance I can achieve. I also feel that the environmental and animal aspects are super important as well.

What kind of activities would you like to see the group participate in?

Social activities and easy ways to meet other like minded people, and activities/information geared towards athletes.

On your veg journey, do you have specific challenges that you'd like help with?

I struggle with feeling confident about this lifestyle, and if it's possible to still be a high level athlete on this diet. I also don't know any other vegans in Boulder so I don't have a ton of support.


I'm a student at CU and level road cyclist/trail runner who is passionate about plant-based nutrition, health, and fitness.
