    A dominant force in the sport of ultrarunning, Scott Jurek is a seven-time winner of the 100-mile Western States Endurance Run and a two-time winner of the 135-mile Badwater Ultramarathon through Death Valley. Eat & Run offers an inspirational account of Jurek’s life as a runner and vegan. Regaling listeners with jaw-dropping tales of endurance, Jurek also delivers sound science and practical advice—as well as his favorite plant-based recipes.

    What other book might you compare Eat and Run to and why?

    Born to Run - Scott Jurek was highlighted in Born to Run. Both books talk about the psychology, dedication and drive that produce ultramarathoners, as well as the joys and struggles that come along with the sport.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book was very inspiring. As a runner, I am always striving to better myself and Scott's story was one of the extreme. I admire his dedication, tenacity and attempts to empower himself through education about all aspects of running and his physical and mental self. I was a little saddened to read about his constant search for happiness and enlightenment through running and perfectionism. A sport as lonely and intrinsic as ultrarunning invariably leads a runner to look into themselves for "that something missing." Only later in life, when Scott started looking outside himself and giving more of himself to others, did he start to find that balance and inner peace. I also really appreciated the recipes and will be buying a print copy simply so I don't have to write them all down as the reader dictates them!
