Robbie Balenger is Running Across America!

Mar 6, 2019

Watch Episode 12 with Robbie Balenger here:

You’ve heard all the myths surrounding plant-based diets: it’s not sustainable as an athlete, or easy when you travel, or fun if you’re a foodie.

Robbie Balenger is about to bust all of those myths in one 3,000-mile run across the United States.

He first laced up his shoes six years ago to alleviate his stress as a restaurant manager. Since then, his career and running paths have coalesced into a passion for endurance athleticism powered by plants — and vegan ice cream.

Robbie joins us to chat about his journey to plant-based wellness, how he plans to fuel his body over the seventy-five-day excursion, and how he hopes to inspire other people to thrive while eating ethically.

He hits the pavement March 15th in Huntington Beach, sponsored by Switch4Good and NadaMoo!
