While I enjoyed the aspects of the narrative, all in all Scott Jurek tends to be too preachy in his approach to tell his story of being an ultimate runner.
Really loved the book. Did not think I would laugh as much as I did. some parts were very funny.
the book has inspired me to make changes. I am eating healthier and running faster.
This book is a must read for my fellow runners.
I thought the narrator was a little dry, but not terrible.
I enjoyed learning about Scott's personal journey as a person and a runner. He is so down to earth. He has good advice on eating and running. I would recommend it for inspiration and encouragement.
Inspirational book about running. The m not a vegan and don't plan to be one anytime soon but I might try some of the nutrition advice to improve my running. All round great book.
I love listening to books about running and this one doesn't disappoint. Great story. I enjoyed the honesty of the story and the story of the author changing his life.
Unsurprisingly, Scott Jurek is a superhuman. His story is amazing and he has convinced me to make the push from vegetarian to a mostly vegan diet. I am also training for my first ultra. That said, I felt like the narrator read the story as too "angry." Jurek is tough, no doubt about it, but I'm not sure why the extra edge was considered necessary for the entire reading. The toughness comes across in his story; it doesn't need to be conveyed so much by tone of voice. That said, I learned a ton and through Scott's journey, I learned a lot about my own and why I personally have chosen running crazy distances. I'm so glad he shared it with the rest of us.
I am a long time runner and athlete, who lost some of his drive (now that I am in my forties) but Scott's journey through running, nutrition and life are very inspiring! So much so, it's given me back my edge as well as a willingness to go vegan and keep running!
Good story, and too much pain is life philosophy. Also the narrator sounded like a macho always giving the action movie trailer white man and it was pretty annoying.
