Description

For nearly two decades, Scott Jurek has been a dominant force - and darling - in the grueling and growing sport of ultrarunning. In 1999, as a complete unknown, he took the lead of the Western States Endurance Run, a 100-mile traverse over the old Gold Rush trails of the California Sierra Nevada. He won that race seven years in a row, setting a course record along the way. 

Twice he won the Badwater Ultramarathon, a 135-mile "jaunt" through Death Valley. Recently he set an American record of 165.7 miles in 24 hours - 6 1/2 marathons in one day. And he was one of the elite runners who traveled to Mexico to run with the Tarahumara Indians, as profiled in the best seller Born to Run. His accomplishments are nothing short of extraordinary, but that he has achieved all of this on a plant-based diet makes his story all the more so.   

In Eat and Run, Scott Jurek opens up about his life and career - as an elite athlete and a vegan - and inspires runners at every level. From his Midwestern childhood hunting, fishing, and cooking for his meat-and-potatoes family, to his early beginnings in running (he hated it), to his slow transition to ultrarunning and veganism, to his world-spanning, record-breaking races, Scott's story shows the power of an iron will and blows apart all the stereotypes of what athletes should eat to fuel optimal performance. 

Chock-full of incredible, on-the-brink stories of endurance and competition, fascinating science, and accessible practical advice - including his own favorite plant-based recipes - Eat and Run will motivate everyone to "go the distance", whether that means getting out for that first run, expanding your food horizons, or simply exploring the limits of your own potential.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Compelling story behind Jurek

If you have ever heard of Scott Jurek, either through David Goggins or through reading Ultra-marathon material, this is definitely worth the time. Doesn’t matter if you run or not, Jurek’s life is a relatable one and has you look at life in a different way, just through his insight from running. His story is compelling enough to go for a run, a primal run; a run with no goal, JUST TO RUN. He comes off as honest and authentic. His narration is smooth and matches the essence of his story. It has also has me deeply considering to do an Ultra. **He gives advice and insight, along with easy recipes. I’ve made about half of them and they are delicious! This book and Can’t Hurt Me are a great pair to have to re-engineer a stronger mindset.

Fascinating story.

Jurek has had quite an amazing life. The book is well written, but he had a tendency to speak in a very monotonous tone which lost me at times so I'd have to rewind at many points in the book. It was bearable because of how interesting the content was. you just had to get passed the tone.

More than ultra running

A joyful but unsentimental story. I went in a vegan so the tales eating and shared recipes were welcomed and inspiring; I share Scott’s experience only after going plant based did I fall in love for the kitchen. I’m excited to dry to raw dinosaur kale :) The running stories are inviting and often mesmerizing. I was totally absorbed in the experience and enjoyed Dusty’s irreverence all along the way. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, is Scott willingness to share the trials and tribulations of his life off of the trail. You finish the book feeling more open and accepting to life’s journey. While I’ll never run an ultra, my own challenges have deepened my love for running as a sacred time and not just “exercise.” There’s no pretense or super hero posturing. Your life can be a transformative practice and how you care for your body and mind—and learning to love your limitations a long the way—is a precious gift. I also really like Scott’s gentle voice and way of story telling. A true gift to runners and non-runners compelled.
