adventures of a plant-based athlete



Hello there!  I’m Charlene.  I’m 25, married and a working professional.  I graduated from the University of Florida with a B.S. in Psychology and an M.S. in Management.  In 2010 I ran my first half-marathon and since then I’ve been full steam ahead to a life of fitness and health.

In September 2012 I become vegetarian and then vegan.  It’s been a gradual process with a lot of learning and experimenting along the way.  I love to cook and love to share great recipes I find and sometimes create.

My husband and I are high school sweethearts who finally ran off and tied the knot in Key West May 2012.  I’m lucky enough to have a partner who is completely and utterly onboard with our healthy lifestyle – which even provides for a little friendly competition!

One change in your life often leads to others and I’ve realized that I’m a type A person who is starting to find her type B side…

I hope you’ll join me on my journey.
