Please describe your current diet (e.g. 811RV, Fruitarian, LFRV, raw vegan, vegan, vegetarian, transitioning from SAD), how stable it is, and how long you have been eating this way.
I call my diet Fruitarianism, which I define as raw fruit being the vast majority of my caloric intake. I have been eating this way since January 2008.
Please describe the type and level of physical exercise that you follow.
I am an accomplished runner, ultra runner, triathlete, mountain climber and more. I consider myself an endurance specialist. I've run a mile in 4:36 and run 100 miles in 12:57 hours, with many other distances and time performances in-between.
Connected already?
yes married
My favorite food (fruit!) is...
Any fruit that is peak ripeness. I particularly like papayas, oranges, tomatoes, cucumbers, figs, pomograntes, rambutans, satsuma clementines
My greatest passion and goal in life is...
Experience all that life has to offer, to explore endlessly and enjoy the journey.
Are you planning to attend this Years Festival? if so 1st, 2nd or both Session?
Both sessions
Are you coming to the festival with your family/partner/kids?
I will be coming with my wife Victoria and our 3 children: Sam 13, Nancy 12, Charlotte 8
What are your hopes and expectations about this festival? What do you anticipate the most?
To enjoy seeing the snowball grow larger and larger - I hope we all work together to get it rolling fast! It's time we let the rest of the world know what we all stumbled on!

Harley and Freelee, No Longer Pioneers; Now Special Guests

Dear WFF Community,

This post is being made on behalf of all current WFF Board of Governors; which are signed at the bottom of this post.

Many people have voiced concern in recent months over the changes in how Harley and Freelee have chosen to change their diet.

As the founders of 30bananasaday.com they were very instrumental in launching the first Woodstock Fruit Festival through the large audience they assembled on their popular website.…

It's a shame and bad decision demoting Freelee and Durianrider. Was planning on going next year. Very disappointed.

Likewise, Michael, I appreciate very much what you are trying to do with the WFF and will stand ready to assist as I am able. I really enjoyed being involved and will likely be there ready to help in 2014. It is on my agenda for sure.

Many thanks and best wishes to you and yours!

Thanks Michael! I'm so excited to come to the festival and be totally inspired by the awesome people and events! I'm surprising my husband because he doesn't know we're going yet...it's my anniversary gift to him and we both will be doing the wff marathon! Thanks for being such an incredible role model and leader!

Thanks for the warm greetings, Mike! (Though after watching your last video, it seems all of your greetings will be warm, in Hawaii.) It's always a pleasure to see a role model leading from the front. You certainly are inspirational for me on many levels.  

I look forward with joy to another run this year. =)

You inspire me! I hope to some day be as fast and active as you. Looking forward to running at the WFF Race, probably doing the 10k. Been mainly fruitarian for only 3 months and loving it!
