Hi Team Vegan!

My name is Dan Kuzma (a.k.a Vegan Dan), and I have been asked to be an online coach for Team Vegan! I am extremely excited about this opportunity as I am passionate about Vegan Outreach and running! As a long-time runner (competitive and recreational), I have gained great wisdom and knowledge from my own experiences as well as from other runners, and I would like to share with you what I have learned...

The first thing that I have learned (and experienced firsthand) is that every body is different and reacts differently to various types of training programs. Some people can run 10 miles a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. The majority of us, including myself, need to balance our training and incorporate rest days to maximize our benefit from running.

I started off running 5k Fun Runs, worked my way up to 10k's and half-marathons, and then sold my soul to the marathon. Eventually, I wanted to see what more I could do, and over the past 3 years I have been running ultramarathons, including numerous 50 mile and 100 mile trail races!

Like many of you, I juggle a busy schedule - full-time school, full-time work, family, friends, activism, and so forth. Running is a part of my life, just like eating, sleeping, and all those other things. I have experimented with many training programs, created a few of my own by adapting already existing plans, and I have helped and guided many friends, family, and even complete strangers in achieving their goals!

I want to help you achieve your goals and raise money for Vegan Outreach to help reduce animal suffering, so please contact me for any assistance!

Once we are in contact, we can communicate through emails, phone calls, or if you are in the Northeast Ohio area, I'd be happy to meet you for some training runs! I am donating my time and energy to help you, motivate you, and answer any and all questions that you may have!

You can email me at, and we can go from there!
