My first half marathon!
I just finished my first half marathon! Feel amazing, I wrote a race report with pictures, come check it out....
There were 7,845 competitors at the half start line, so it was absolutely packed! It was pitch black and quite chilly. I was planning on starting with the 1hr 50mins group but the group was so far from the start that I decided to slip in with the 1:20/1:30 group. The gun went off and it took me only about 40 secs to cross the start line...read more on my blog.

My Wound healing on the fruity lifestyle - warning graphic
Today I thought I would share about my fabulous wound-healing on the low fat fruity lifestyle...
Back at the start of 2008 I got my very first road bike, boy was I EXCITED! I hadn’t been on a bike for about 10years so I was keen to get my legs back. The first day was great, I was gliding along with the
traffic, feeling pretty confident and the day went off without a hitch.
The next day I wasn’t so lucky!
The rest of the story can be seen on my blog with pics...

Amazing pics and results. I would add just one thing - and maybe it is what you did: Use purified water or saline solution to rinse. No added pain from saline as there can be with regular tap water.
Glad it worked out for you; that took guts!
Thanks So much :-) Yes you're right about regular tap water, I agree. Good thing where I was living at the time we had fresh mountain water. Regular tap water is a shocker!
So inspiring!! Do you possibly have an email addy, I have a couple questions for you:)
So, for many months now I've increased the amount of fruit I'm eating and lowered my fat. I wouldn't say that I'm eating low fat, but I'm not rolling around in the stuff like I was before. It's progress. FreeLee's video on how much fruit she ate blew my socks off. I've got more balance in my diet. Before I'd eat too pure, like green juice, then lose it and eat fatty cooked food. Now, I'm still doing green juice but eating lots of fruit, because, afterall, we do need calories to run on. I went through a terribly busy phase of life where I could only grab bags of fruit and eat as much as I could when I could, then I'd go home and eat a salad at night. Strangest thing, I started feeling better. Now, I eat like a monkey; I eat pretty simply, lots and lots of fruit. Often just mono-eating a bunch at once, sometimes a mixed fruit salad, very often green smoothies, and a variety of salads. I'm graduating from massage therapy school, so I'll have more time. Instead of spending all of my time making gourmet food, I'm going to use it exercising! Thanks FreeLee!
I trudge the road of happy destiny in the sunlight of the spirit!
You look great Freelee! Keep up the health!
Aleesha thank you so much :-)) It really feels good to finally feel balanced within myself, it's been a looong time coming but I've finally arrived! Thanks for popping in and sharing your great energy here x

thanks so much for sharing xx
Thank you so much! I honestly used to feel terrible. My next video is going to be about how I overcame my suicidal tendencies on this lifestyle. So thankful to have found it.

Hi freelee; I have a couple questions for you.
1) I've read your story about your struggle with anorexia. I've seen the before pictures of you when you were overweight but never any of you when you were anorexic. Do you have any? Most anorexics that i've mentored don't love themselves very much but for some reason still take a lot of pictures.
2) I've watched a few of your videos where you lecture people who eat meat. You make sound like you started the raw vegan diet because of your love for animals -- when in fact you did it for health reasons. (which is a good) Are you now eating raw because you can't stand the thought of killing an animal for food? If so when did this change? IMO your videos where you lecture meat eaters seem really fake; especially since your motivation was health reasons only.
