It’s election day in the U.S. (speaking of which, if you haven’t already, go vote!), and right about now your inbox is probably filled with last-minute campaign notifications and news alerts.
So we thought we’d do something a little different…
I was looking back through the archives, and we haven’t posted a community update since April of 2013.
2013! A lot has changed since then…
As a team member here at NMA, I’m lucky enough to see firsthand some of what this community is up to. From posts on our Facebook page, Pulse members sending out updates, or people just reaching out via email or Twitter to share their latest accomplishments, I’m constantly blown away by your stories.
But recently we haven’t done a very good job of sharing those amazing stories from other NMAs with you.
For example, did you hear about Terry Hagio, jumping her way into a finish at the Soldier Field 10 miler?
Or about Kristen Nelander and her family hanging with Meb Keflezighi in St. Louis?
Then there’s Erin Derby, who also loves to involve the family on race day. Here’s Erin’s son after cheering her on at the Flat Five 5-miler in St. Louis.
And Andrew Rohrbacher, who crossed the finish line at the 2018 Dallas Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon sub-2 hours…
We can’t forget about Madison Marie, who set a new PR at the San Diego Half!
Oh, and remember the No Meat Athlete running groups?
The NMA Baltimore group just celebrated their fourth birthday with a big group run, followed by a delicious breakfast at the classic Baltimore veggie breakfast spot One World Cafe.
And the NMA Boston group took on the trails of New Jersey at Ragnar Wawayanda! Their team name? ‘Team Herbivorous Beasts’!
But it hasn’t been all running…
You guys have also been cooking up a plant-based storm!
Like Pulse member Bianca Phillips’s take on Savory Oatmeal…
Kristin Helena’s Black-Eyed Pea and Collard Stew (she calls this her favorite meal ever!)…
And Michelle Nelson’s veggie burger.
Did I mention all of these came from recipes in the No Meat Athlete Cookbook?
Needless to say, this community has been busy, and the NMA Team couldn’t be more impressed. Thanks to everyone who has been posting their photos.
And thank you for making this community what it is!
