The Vegan Experiment: Week 1 Initial Stats


Front view. Man, that gut’s gotten bigger with each year after 30!!
Letting it all hang out. Embarrassing!
Who’s got handles? I’ve got handles… and there’s NO LOVE where those come from!

Ouch… 5’9″, 184 pounds.  That puts me at a 27 on the BMI chart.  Though my bodyfat is in the lower double digits (about 13%), being this heavy is NOT very healthy for my endurance sports endeavors; no joint will last forever and the hips, knees, and feet will wear out faster when you’re heavier!!  I had my personal best times for triathlon and marathons when I was weighing in at about 165 pounds and that was almost 20 years ago.  I’m pretty confident that I can get there with this vegan lifestyle… actually, I think I can even do better!

The initial stats are out and they can only get better from here.

25 days until my 1/2 marathon.

145 days until Ironman Santa Rosa.
