Yesterday was Thanksgiving here in the States, and I gotta say, it was pretty perfect.

I woke up early, ran a Thanksgiving 5K with my cousins, and joined family (ranging from my 95 year old grandmother to my 18 month old niece) for a feast.

I drank a few winter ales, laughed (for hours), and ate lots and lots of plants.

An absurd amount of plants. Like I’m embarrassed to admit how much food I ate. But it’s Thanksgiving, so I don’t regret it. đŸ˜‰

If you only know me from this site, you may or may not know that I’m vegan. I don’t mention it often on Rock Creek Runner because I’m much more concerned with helping you run long on trails than I am about what you eat.

So you’ll never hear me preaching a specific nutrition agenda here on Rock Creek Runner.

But … my plant-based diet is a big part of my life and work with No Meat Athlete, where I also write and co-host a podcast.

Today we’re launching something I’m so excited to be a part of that I’m breaking my normal rule of not talking diet. So if you’re vegan, vegetarian, veg-curious, or simply like tools that make you healthier, here’s the deal:

The No Meat Athlete Black Friday Bundle is back, and this year it includes plant-based fitness & habit guides, meal plans, and cookbooks from 21 of the top plant-based authors and fitness & cooking experts online.

Including two monthly units from my popular Next Level Runner program.
