It's a decent book.

It's entertaining but I hoped for more training tips as the book progressed. it was a good book though.

must read

I absolutely loved this book. Aside from the fact that it was very well written and well read, it was very inspiring. To see where Scott came from and see how he overcame against some odds, can't help but be inspired.

I could almost feel myself running. Intense.

The way Scott told his story, I almost felt like I was there with him at times. The amazing ups and downs, trials and tribulations made me want to continue until I was finished with the story. I may never run over 100 miles in one session, but the things I have learned in the story will be with me every time I run.

Getting to know the real Scott Jurek

I thought I knew Scott from articles I had read and stories I have heard. But this book showed why he won Western States. numerous times. Why he pushed himself to the limits. I learned about digging deep when you have nothing left. I love the similarities we both have in that we know importance of nutrition especifically one centered around veganism. After reading this book I have more respect for Scott as a runner and human being. Love this book and recommend it to anyone who loves running or just has that competitive drive.

love it

I'd read the paperback before, but decided to do the audible as I traveled west recently to do a trail marathon. It's one of the best inspirational running books I've come across.
