I am just starting my vegan journey and need advice about how to tailor it so it helps my running. Going vegetarian has helped me feel much better, get over stomach upsets I was plagued with and most importantly slash my running pace by 1.5 minutes so far. I would welcome all advice, info about websites, books and other resources you might know of. And personal stories as well. Also, should I take any supplements?

Read "Eat and Run" - Scott Jurek. Top ultra-runner and vegan. Some really good recipes in there as well.

Yes, I read this book and it also inspired me to go vegan. The healing properties of food really appeal to me.

Disclaimer: I'm not vegan, but I am veggie, and trying to reduce my reliance on cheese (but there are so many varieties, and they taste so good...). Still, trying to follow the advice: "Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants."

Suggest you look at this blog It's an American couple and they are both runners and vegan. They post regularly about foods for runners and have lots of easy and tasty recipe suggestions.

I am a vegan runner, since going vegan from vegetarian I have had lots of energy and found it has helped me improve my performance. I am currently reading Finding Ultra about Rich Roll a vegan ultra triathlon althlete who discovered running and veganism in his forties. 

I also love Eat and Run and met Scott Jurek at the weekend, he was really inspirational.
