Vegan ethics

Andy has been vegan since 2009.

“I do it for ethical reasons, by this point in human evolution, we should be smart enough and kind enough to live without torturing other living beings just so we can enjoy a juicy lunch. There are plenty of plant-based options available that taste great and are excellent meat and dairy alternatives.

“If most people were able to see the mistreatment of these animals at factory farms and what goes on behind the scenes before it shows up to them in a nice shiny package they would be sick. It’s very easy to find on the internet, stop pretending you can’t find it and look it up.”

A versatile sportsman

As if Andy’s track achievements were not enough, he also competes in cross country mountain biking, and streetluge.   In 2009 he was part of a four-man team that won the 24 Hours of Big Bear in the Men’s Sport division. 

In 2009 he was #1 qualifier for both luge classes at the IGSA World Championships in Bathurst, Australia.  He went on to his win the World Championship in Classic Luge and finish 2nd in Unlimited Luge. Lally also trains in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and is currently a Purple Belt.
