Jackie Merritt is a physical therapist and biomechanist, she has a PhD in Neuroscience, and has completed FOUR 100 mile races. She has finished F7 (seventh female) in Western States 100 mile Endurance Run in 2017. And she has done it all on a plant-based vegan diet! It is a conversation about her path to becoming vegan, what motivated her and how it positively impacted her running career. Jackie shares her inspiration, her tips for training and fueling, her experience with Western States, and addresses common concerns women may have about plant-based vegan diet being sufficient for endurance running...or pregnancy.
