In 2013, Alan and Janette ran around Australia, running a marathon a day! No matter what the weather was like they were out there on the road, proving that no matter how young or old you are you can do anything you put your mind to! Alan and Janette, who are in their 60’s, ate nothing but raw fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds along the way around Australia! These raw vegans are an inspiration and are showing the world that vegans who eat a healthy plant-based diet are not lacking in anything, disproving those annoying protein myths out there!
Janette beat breast cancer with her raw vegan lifestyle and she wants the whole world to see the truth and understand that through positive thinking, loving yourself and eliminating toxins from your lifestyle and diet you can beat cancer (and pretty much any other disease). A raw vegan lifestyle is the key to great health and wellbeing! She wrote a book on her experience you can order it on her website, it’s a great read for everyone and a thoughtful gift for those you may know faced with being told chemo or radiation is their only options – rawcancure.com/
My husband and I crewed for them for 3 months, travelling from Darwin to Perth. It was a real character-building adventure. The scenery was breathtaking, the wildlife was amazing and sleeping under the stars almost every night in a tent was a great experience!
Alan and Janette, I want to thank you both from the bottom of my heart for everything you have done for the animals and for proving that vegans are in fact not pale, sick and weak like the stereotype makes us out! And thank you for having such a strong mind, for continuing onwards, no matter what you face! I know it wasn’t easy for you both! I am so happy you are back in Melbourne safe and sound, enjoying the company of your family and friends. I wish you the best for what you decide to do next!!!
Yesterday, on the 1st of January 2014 Alan and Janette ran another marathon which makes them the world record-holders for running the most marathons consecutively! 366 marathons in 366 days!!!!!! INCREDIBLE!!!! I joined them on a bicycle from Hays Paddock, finishing in Warrandyte. I’m not very fit yet and it was hard work… but to think that they just ran around Australia… This year I’m going to get fitter and be proud of my fitness level! I meet some cool people whilst joining Alan and Janette for their last marathon and had a fun day in the rain! Here are a few photos from my day.
