On September 30, 2007, a group of Veggie Runners will participate in the Scotiabank Marathon in support of the Veggie Challenge and to show that you can be Veggie & Fit! Timothy Christ plans to be there.
Timothy’s journey began over 20 years ago with the knowledge that he was lactose intolerant. From there it was a slow process of making ethical decisions to limit his animal product intake: not easy, considering he was a chef for many of those years.
Although Timothy considered himself a vegetarian, he was a poorly educated one. His diet was high in calories and low in nutritional density. Then things started to change. He began studying to become a registered massage therapist and personal trainer. In the process he shifted to a vegan diet, and for the past 4 years has been vegan and 70-100% raw.
Today Timothy is an RMT at Toronto’s Cornerstones of Health Clinic. He credits his success in 6 marathons and 2 Ironman races to leading a balanced and holistic lifestyle. He also notes that the greatest improvement he has experienced with his Raw Vegan diet has been in post exercise recovery.
His weekend workouts while training for his second Ironman competition were in excess of 12 hrs. Yet by Tuesday morning he was completely recovered.
Timothy places great value on the children of the world, and puts his extra time and energy to help those that are in need or less fortunate than his own children. This is why he supports HUG (Helping for a United Good) and Guluwalk.
In the coming weeks we’ll tell you how you can show your support for the Veggie Challenge by cheering Timothy and all the Veggie Runners on race day.
Stay tuned for more!
