Summer is here and this week was busy as heck. We had teammates running 5k’s, 10k’s, 15k’s, 10 milers and even 100+ milers! Good lawd y’all; SHVP has been crushing all the miles and we are just getting started. Let’s get into it! On June 27th, the dynamic duo of Joel Capolongo and David Houston took on the Tom Fleming Sunset Classic 5 Miler in Bloomfield, NJ. This race has been coming back year after year. “Since the early 1980’s, The Sunset Classic has been a calendar favorite in Northern New Jersey road racing.” This race is fun and unique […]
Last week we met in Pittsfield, Massachusetts for the annual running of the Vegan Power 25k/ 50k Ultra. This is one of our teammates favorite races every year and many of use have come back year after year; this was my third time. The race director, Alex Bancroft, and crew put on such a well polished event it’s hard not to fall in love with it. With a smooth volunteer troupe and aid stations that are always stocked with all sorts of vegan goodies; runners are taken care of extremely well. This year one of our own, Marie Gryszowka, was […]
As SHVP looks for new ways to engage with our community, we talked about sharing our accomplishments via weekly roundups. As this is the first, it may be a bit raw but it will be refined as we move along. What we hope for is that by sharing our races and individual accomplishments, as team members of one of the largest ethical running clubs around, is that we can inspire others and or prove that being a vegan athlete (amateur or pro) it’s not as difficult as you’ve been led to believe. With that said, let’s get on to it… […]
What an amazing race! The fact that the weather was grumpy and ugly couldn’t dampen the camaraderie and love that was palpable all weekend long. Once again, SHVP showed up ready to compete and represent veganism in a way that was not only compassionate but that was fiercely exuberant. We towed the line with 3 teams of 7 runners: Team Seitan: Nate DeMontigny, Evan O’Brien, Kara Pellowe, Rachel Atcheson, Sean Bethell (Captain), Peter Nussbaum, Kathryn J. Wicht Team Tofu: Susie Pietsch, Marie Gryszowka (Captain), Christopher Campbell, Lauren Victoria, Mikey Dee, Ashley Sherman, Brian G Smith Team TVP: Andrew Boynton, Shawna Rae, Joel Capolongo, Melissa […]
Race season is in full swing, and our strong-hearted runners spent the month of May crushing courses, earning PRs, and logging those final training miles for Ragnar PA. Spoiler: vegan donuts may have also been involved.
Our ragtag band of vegans had a busy April, logging lots of miles and posting a bunch of impressive PRs. Looks like some good training in there for Ragnar Pennsylvania, which is now only a few short weeks away!
Race season is getting underway and things finally are starting to pick up again for our compassionate crew. Here’s what our teammates got up to in March.
Our strong-hearted vegan crew braved the snow and wind last month to take down some serious miles and earn some PRs. There also may have been some shorts-clad frolicking, because 60-degree days in February are now a thing. Thanks, climate change.
January was another light month for our runners race-wise (hello off-season!), but a few of our teammates still made a point of getting out there and logging some bib-clad miles. Here’s what our crew got up to last month:
Happy New Year! Now that we’re through the chaos of the holidays and fully embarking on 2017, let’s take a glance back at how our teammates closed out last year and chat a little about what our team has on the agenda for the coming months.
