    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.

    Heidi says: "If you liked "Born to Run"...get this book!!!"

    What did you love best about Eat and Run?

    I love everything about it, but especially the tips at the end of each chapter.


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

    Barbara Kingsolver's 'Animal, Vegetable, Miracle' As they both blend food consciousness with life stories.


    What about Quincy Dunn-Baker’s performance did you like?

    He was funny, the inflections were all right on.


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

    We laughed a lot, cried a little. I read it partially on my long run days...his story makes you unable to give up at like mile while he is running 100, and partially on a family road trip- everyone liked it.
