My next challenge is something completely different. I'm giving veganism a whirl! I read about Veganuary (a campaign organised by the Vegan society, challenging people to eat like a vegan for the whole of January) earlier this year, but didn't think it wise to make drastic changes to my diet whilst marathon training.
