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.

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.

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:

As a crew, the Strong Hearts Vegan Power team is known for slaying 200-mile relays a couple times a year. Our individual teammates, however, keep on moving—crushing PRs, crossing finish lines, and representing ethical veganism—all year round. Here’s a look at what some of our runners accomplished in the month of October.
