Here is my racing schedule for the 2007 summer (italics mean “tentative,” bold means “confirmed”):
March 24 – Indoorman in Saskatoon, U of S Tri Club
May 13 – Regina Beach MTB race in Regina
May 27 – Saskatoon Marathon in Saskatoon, Saskatoon Road Runners
June 3 – Moe’s Triathlon in Saskatoon, Bike Doctor
June 10 – Prince Albert MTB race in Prince Albert, Fresh Air Experience
June 17 – Spin Off Spadina in Saskatoon, Saskatoon Triathlon Club
June 24 – Mountain bike race in Saskatoon (Blackstrap), NBR
July 1 – Great White North Triathlon (Half Ironman) in Stony Plain, AB
July 21-22 – Prince Albert road race in PA
August 12 – Frank Dunn Triathlon in Waskesiu
August 26 – Ironman Canada in Penticton, BC
Last year I did less races than this, but I have a big goal at the end of it. I always feel great after a good race and I figure that I’ll use the bike races as training days. The triathlons will be for practice because I’ll need it! It is going to be a busy summer… I may just burn out at this race.

What is VT?
This website is one that I, Crystal Clarke, started in 2007 with big ideas. It is morphing slowly into a resourceful website for vegans and athletes alike. I put my personal touch on this website in the recipes and the training blog, as I'm a writer, a scientist, a triathlete & a vegan. So what is a vegan triathlete? Well...
vegan. n. vee-gahn. - a person who refrains from using any animal product whatever for food, clothing, or any other purpose.
triathlete. n. someone who participates in races consisting of swimming, biking, and running in that order; there are several varying distances with some standard distances:
Sprint: 750m swim, 20km bike, 5km run
Olympic: 1.5km swim, 40km bike, 10km run
Half Ironman: 2km swim, 90km bike, 21.1km run
Ironman: 3.8km swim, 180km bike, 42.2km run
Please leave comments! I love reading and replying to comments. Cheers!
Who am I?
My name is Crystal Clarke. I'm a vegan triathlete. I've been vegan since 2002 and a triathlete since 2003. Since then I have completed 1 Ironman, 4 half IMs, several Olympic triathlons, and many other triathlons, duathlons, running races, and biking races. My goal for each race is to finish. I'm pretty slow, but can be a middle-of-the-pack person if I'm not injured and train consistently.
In addition to being a vegan triathlete, I'm a writer, I'm an Agrologist, I'm a soil scientist, I'm a knitter, I'm an anti-consumer, I'm an environmentalist, I'm a budding Buddhist, I'm a yogi, I'm a student of life, and I'm bipolar. I'm a lot of things! I don't fit into any one category - that's what I think sets me apart from other athlete blogs.
