Robbie Balenger is an endurance runner and a vegan. In 2019 he completed a 3,175-mile run across the US in 75 days, averaging 43 miles a day, and he recently broke the record for most laps around New York’s Central Park in one day. His fascination with running began one day when he went for a two and a half-mile run with his partner and he’s hardly been still since. Running replaced a party-heavy lifestyle for Balenger and is now his sanctuary. “Running is the most spiritual aspect of my life. It’s where I go to be with myself and to explore who I am and the energies around me and who I want to be,” said Balenger.
