Welcome to the “Vegan Cyborg” Transformation

Vegan Power Story

My name is Kimatni D Rawlins and I’ve been a vegan since 2011. I Lost 50 lbs after the transformation and at age 44 I still have the majority of my speed and strength from my Georgia Tech Football running back days. I founded both Fit Fathers and Vegan Pro and run marathons, half marathons, urbanathlons, box, strength train, swim, mountain bike, cycle, hike, climb and everything else.

I’m free of any supplementation, only drink water, coconut water, and herbal decaf tea, eat 5 to 7 servings of fruits and veggies a day, do not cook with oils, and shy from processed vegan foods.

I am both alcohol free and smoke free and love reggae. I’ve flown 2.2 million miles globally to explore the diversity of the world and its rich plant-based foods and indigenous peoples. As I continue to evolve myself into a Vegan Cyborg only pure foods, thoughts and actions can enter my realm. Please join me if you’re looking for life everlasting change.

Life is for the living so please ascertain to eat clean, stay active and only feed your mind with pure, positive and enlightened thoughts that lead to purity and prosperity. The body is a temple so treat it as one.

I Run to Stay Young

Kimatni_Rawlins

I woke up before the sun’s eyes

so I can watch the sun rise,

and run 10 miles in the sun’s shine.

Galloping like a finely fed steed,

I’m fueled only by grass and seeds —

never dairy or meats.

Everyday I strengthen my frame

with endurance and fitness regimens that maintain and enhance my health.

For, it’s not science,

this is a lifestyle of nutritional wealth!

-Kimatni D. Rawlins –

Fit Fathers Runs the DC Rock-n-Roll Half Marathon

DC-Rock-n-Roll-marathon-Kimatni-Rawlins-Chuka-Agugua-Rashawn-Ciers-Fit-FathersReady, set, rock is exactly what the Fit Fathers squad did this past Saturday in our nation’s capital for the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series. The camaraderie was pretty amazing since Chuka Agugua, Rashawn Ciers and I experienced the same brutal winter weather in Maryland with painfully, frigid 2-hour Saturday morning long runs. But the perseverance and determination paid off as we collectively ran one of our best races.

Needing only a banana and coconut water for fuel and electrolytes, I didn’t expect to break the 2-hour threshold because of the hills and of course very slow training runs. However, after hitting mile-6 in about 54 minutes I knew I could achieve more. My fellow Fit Fathers said they felt the same during the 13.1-mile mission. As a band of brothers we were energized with positive vibrations and the extension of life.

So remember, accomplishments do not manifest overnight. A quick fix is never the recipe for long-term success, especially with a healthy lifestyle change. Thank you #RNRDC for the experience!
