Vegetarian diets are more and more common every day. People choose to eat a vegetarian diet for a number of reasons such as cultural, moral or health reasons. As a runner, your diet is important not only for maintaining good health, but also to ensure top performance. Proper nutrition and hydration can make or break a workout or race, and also greatly affects how runners feel. A nutritionally sound vegetarian diet is possible if enough nutrients are consumed from a wide variety of foods but a runner who consumes a poor vegetarian diet may be at risk for nutritional deficiencies as well as poor physical performance. Please check back often for updates and add yourself to the Facebook page and Twitter feed for up-to-date information.
