 Scott Jurek is one of the world's best known and most beloved ultrarunners. Renowned for his remarkable endurance and speed, accomplished on a vegan diet, he's finished first in nearly all of ultrarunning's elite events over the course of his career. But after two decades of racing, training, speaking, and touring, Jurek felt an urgent need to discover something new about himself. He embarked on a wholly unique challenge, one that would force him to grow as a person and as an athlete: breaking the speed record for the Appalachian Trail.

Such an amazing, thrilling and motivating story about Scott’s journey to FKT the AT. I absolutely loved hearing both Scott and his wife, Jenny’s, view of the events that took place. The book kept me wanting to come back for more and wished it had never ended! Highly recommend!
