Vegan Runner Take The Lead As The Fastest Known Time.

Vegan runner, who participates in ultra races, Catra Corbett, set a new time on the Muir Ramble Route in California – showing that age may not matter, but diet plays an important role in health and setting the fastest known time for the three hundred and ten-mile race.

The vegan runner, who states on her Instagram “I get up in the morning looking for an adventure. It’s how I live!”

I get up in the morning looking for an adventure. It’s how I live!

Corbett, who told VegNews, that a decision twenty four years ago to go vegan, after struggling with substance and alcohol addiction, now gets her energy from avocados, vegan energy bars, and almond butter packets. “Once I got clean and sober, I started believing I could do things. I became a runner which gave me confidence. It taught me [that], ‘I CAN,’” Corbett stated in an Instagram post after the race. “The word ‘can’t’ [no] longer exist[s] in my vocabulary.”

The Muir Ramble Route, which was seven days long, is not for the faint of heart, and she was accompanied by a team of pacers and her dog, TruMan. The grueling mentally and physically challenging bout begins in San Francisco and ends in Yosemite Valley, and follows the walking trail of a Scottish immigrant from the 1800’s, who would routinely walk the route, with the legend “that John Muir would just throw a bag of tea in his pocket, grab some bread, toss a coat over his shoulder and walk to Yosemite”
