Monday, September 1, marks six months since the launch of Vegan on the Run. With VOTR six months strong, I feel it’s only fitting to revisit some of the highlights from the past six months, beginning with my “On the Run” out of town adventures. Complete with each recap are photos that didn’t quite make the blog the first time around.

March // St. Augustine Spring Breakin’





Ah, my St. Augustine Spring Break trip. Just a few short weeks after launching Vegan on the Run, while in the heart of marathon training, I ventured over to the oldest city to take advantage of a change of scenery and reunite with a friend I had not seen in many moons (Andrew).

Retreating to the Woods

Naturally it seemed like a perfect time to retreat off the grid to stay in a cabin for a few days and spring hop down the Santa Fe River with my counterpart. And so, at the start of last week, we set out for a much needed retreat into the central Florida wilderness near Rum Island in Fort White, not too far from Gainesville. The days immediately before departure, I realized my brain was spinning too fast, and feeling like its wires were totally burnt out. This retreat couldn’t have come at a better time.
