The inspiration of a local vegan marathoner!

Trent Nelson asked us to work with him to design a shirt that he could wear in the Twin Cities Marathon on October 3. We love his commitment to running, the animals and the planet. He shared his story:

“I went vegan accidentally back at the start of 2021. My kid went vegetarian and I told them that I would try it for a week. I started watching YouTube videos around animal ethics to figure out where I should draw the line between what I eat and what I don’t eat. By the end, I was convinced that I should go vegan. I honestly didn’t think I would be able to, but I wanted to at least try to go as close to vegan as I could. I was surprised by how easy it was to find different stuff to eat…. and I was soon loving it. After three weeks, I felt absolutely fantastic and could feel it in my running. That fall, I ran my first marathon in five years. I’m still loving it today. For animals. For the earth. For people. Go Vegan!!”

Wishing Trent much luck in the marathon!
