What an inspiration. Best bit: ‘When people ask me why I’m vegan I say “Why aren’t you?” After all I just beat you…’ Legend.

Fiona Oakes talking about running and veganism

When I’m at a race people are, you know, quite surprised that I can do what I do on a vegan diet. And they say, ‘Why are you vegan?’ and I would say to them, 'Well, why aren’t you? Because, after all, I’ve just beaten you. So perhaps if you try my diet, you might be up there winning races, too.
