Stern co-host Robin Quivers finishes New York City Marathon, credits vegan diet

Howard Stern Show co-host Robin Quivers finished her New York City Marathon debut in 6 hours and 9 minutes with funds raised benefiting two childhood nutrition programs—The Sylvia Center and Family Cook Productions—through her charity 15 Foundation.

In an article on Huffington Post Quivers writes, “I'm nutty for nutrition. I've become one of those people who can't stop talking about the connection between food and health. Like a lot of people, I used to think I was incapable of doing anything about the way I felt everyday. Now that I know how much changing what you eat can transform your life, I can't stop proselytizing.”

Quivers credits her switch to a vegan diet in 2007 for helping her shed 80 pounds and giving her the strength and energy to run the race.
