Cool chandeliers in San Fran
'which is your favorite, swimming, biking or running?' Now this isn't the first time that I have been asked this question but this is the first time I really thought about it. In the past I would just answer with whichever one I had been enjoying the most at the time, or more likely whichever one I had just done. This time my answer was different, I responded I really like swimming, I really like biking and I really like running. The interrogator (or person just making polite conversation) pressed on and said 'but if you had to pick one to do and could only do one which would it be?'. That is when the answer came to me, I would pick triathlon. And, when the next question came in the little room with the hot lights and the two way mirror 'what distance would you do if you could only do one distance?', I responded with no eye shift and no hesitation that I would do Ironman. So next year, 2012 if all goes well I will return to my favorite thing after a 6 year hiatus and line up at the start of my 13th Ironman.

When people find out that I follow a vegan diet they naturally tend to have many questions for me. Mostly, they want to know what I eat so I have decided to start sharing some of my favorite dishes and meals. I aim for a mostly raw diet, meaning that my food is not cooked or heated over 110 degrees F and it is all plant based. Recipes available on request.
