Vegan Month of Food 2015

Vegan Month of Food 2015

VeganMofo15corn

Tomorrow is the 1st of September so that means it’s the start of the Vegan Month of Food!

Last year I joined in even though I’d only just started blogging and didn’t really have a theme (most blogs had a theme for the Vegan Mofo). I enjoyed trying out new recipes, posting reviews of vegan restaurants and finding some really interesting new blogs to follow.

I wanted to take part again this year but still didn’t have a theme so I was pleased to see they’ve changed things around a little.

Rather than having themes the folks at Vegan Mofo have given 30 prompts for everyone to post about. The prompts are quite fun and should make some good reading. I’m not planning to do every prompt, I mean I have no opinion on the taco vs burittos debate, but I am going to try to do most of them.

I’ll still be posting my training updates and other running related posts, especially as the Trailffest half marathon happens at the end of the month, but the majority of my September will be food related.

I hope you enjoy it, maybe try some new vegan recipes and find some new vegan blogs to follow.

Are you taking part in Vegan Mofo? Let me know in the comments and I’ll be sure to follow you.

Training for the Reading Half Marathon: 1 week to go

After the first half of my training for the Reading Half Marathon going very well, the last 4 weeks have been a bit meh. The first run of week 6 was my Tuesday track night which was fun as usual. However, when I got home I started to feel a little lump in my throat and…

My big goal race this spring is the Reading Half Marathon on 18 March. I was asked to be an Ambassador for the race back in December and started training for it in January. I’m now at the halfway point of my training and thought I’d check in to tell you how I am doing. Setting a…
