    Story
    "informative and motivational"

    Even if I weren't a runner I would have enjoyed this book. I really liked the background of how he got into ultras and being vegan. And the recipes at the end were an added bonus that I have been adding to my own menus at home.

    Story
    "It was ok"

    I bought this book because of my desire to start on a path of better eating and maybe to get back into running. I still will do that and this book did help to learn some of those things. Over all Scott's life was interesting but I found this good to be a bit on the arrogant side. Though Scott's accomplishments were great in the running world the way he went about telling the story left me wondering were was the humble guy at he end of the race that great the other runners.

    Story
    "A good follow-up read to Born to Run"
    What did you love best about Eat and Run?

    The focus on nutrition and how it can play such a role in an athlete's life. The candour with which the story is told.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Scott - hard to pick anyone else given it is essentially a Bio.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Quincy Dunn-Baker?

    Yes, if it was a book I was interested in.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It did keep me engaged and wanting to hear more. Tough as I had just come off Born To Run which I believe it my favourite audiobook to date.


    Any additional comments?

    Read Born to Run then read this...

    "An inspiring story."

    Scott Jurek has intrigued me since reading about him in "Born to Run". After reading this, I'm even more intrigued. His story inspires and makes me want to push beyond the limits I have imposed on myself. I encourage anyone who feels those limits to read this, and follow Scott's advice and example as you tread forward in your journey.

    Story
    "What a book!"
    What made the experience of listening to Eat and Run the most enjoyable?

    Nice narration, beautiful story


    What did you like best about this story?

    The book is so inspirational and it is almost impossible to believe it is true. It feels like fiction! But it is not. I happened to start reading (actually listening on audible) some of the ultra runners book as a way to see how they are pushing their minds and body to achieve what they are doing. It is almost yogic in retrospect. I really wanted to give the print book as a gift to my 10 year old daughter only if it did not have all those Dusty's swear of F words. I really wish the author could have removed them and told __swear words__ here and leave it to readers imaginations.

    The way mother - son love is portrayed, his vegan lifestyle, his surreal runs on all those Western States, Badwater, 24 hr runs. Ah it is incredible. I had to resist finish listening into the story and hold back to enjoy in 4 days. Otherwise I would have finished in one siting of 8 hours. I listened to all in my walks. It is sad his life had all these setbacks (no spoiler here) and how he overcame in late 2010. One of the most memorable memoirs I have ever read.


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

    Very clear


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

    It was very touching.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish the F words were not present so that I can listen in as family.

    Story
    "Should've had a chapter on Copper Canyon race."
    If you could sum up Eat and Run in three words, what would they be?

    Inspiring, entertaining and helpful


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Isn't it obvious, this is an autobiography.


    Have you listened to any of Quincy Dunn-Baker’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


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

    No


    Any additional comments?

    I think it's a very good book and the stories on Scott's races are great. But it would've make it better for me if he'd talk mora about races were he didn't win. Specially the races in Mexico with the Tarahumaras. As a reader of Born to Run I kind of was expecting a little of that.
