Scott Cary leads the team to victory.
You remember the vegan firemen, right? Well, Sergeant Scott Cary, head of the Austin Police Department Running Team, as well as their official “peer-to-peer counselor coordinator” and “wellness sergeant” (it’s a hippie town, huh?), is a vegan, too.
Cary is profiled in the “Fit City” section of the Austin American Statesman this week. He originally gave up meat for health reasons, and the article focuses on him turning his own health around and helping fellow cops do the same. As he says, “the days of coffee and doughnuts are over. [Now] it’s a latte with soy milk and a bagel.”
