Hello, and welcome to Plant-Powered Running!
My name is Marian, and I am a vegan distance runner living in Columbia, South Carolina.
I started Plant-Powered Running in October 2017, the day after running my seventh (that’s right, 7th) 50k, to show other distance runners interested in the plant-based lifestyle that they absolutely can make it work.
When I’m not blogging, I’m often out for a run, working out at the gym or puttering in the kitchen. I love to cook, and I’ve come to enjoy cooking even more since I stopped making things that required handling raw meat!
While the primary aim of Plant-Powered Running is to share recipes and information about nutrition in a way that’s relevant to vegan athletes (and aspiring vegan athletes), the blog also includes resources on related topics, including cross-training (which every runner needs to do, vegan or not) and alternative diets such as my vegan slow-carb diet experiment.
Again, welcome! Check out some of my recent recipe and nutrition posts, and if you want to learn more – like the answer to the question “where do you get your protein?” – just leave me your email address in the pop-up and I’ll send you my free guide to plant-based sources of protein.
And if you have anything else to ask about or say, good, bad or indifferent, feel free to comment below or send me an email at:

Thanks for stopping by, and I look forward to sharing even more in the future and hearing about your own journey as a vegan athlete!
