"What a triumph—both Scott Jurek's life and this one-of-a-kind book. I've seen Scott in action as he defies unimaginable challenges, and thanks to this breathtakingly personal account, I finally understand how he does it. He rebuilt himself literally from the inside out, and the result is a man—and a story—unlike any other." —Christopher McDougall, best-selling author of Born to Run
From the Back Cover
In pursuing the mental side of endurance, Jurek uncovers the most important secrets any runner can learn. Amby Burfoot, author of "The Runner s Guide to the Meaning of Life"
For nearly two decades, Scott Jurek has been a dominant force and darling in the grueling and growing sport of ultrarunning. Until recently he held the American 24-hour record and he was one of the elite runners profiled in the runaway bestseller "Born to Run."
In "Eat and Run," Jurek opens up about his life and career as a champion athlete with a plant-based diet and inspires runners at every level. From his Midwestern childhood hunting, fishing, and cooking for his meat-and-potatoes family to his slow transition to ultrarunning and veganism, Scott s story shows the power of an iron will and blows apart the stereotypes of what athletes should eat to fuel optimal performance. Full of stories of competition as well as science and practical advice including his own recipes "Eat and Run" will motivate readers and expand their food horizons.
Jurek s story and ideas should easily manage to speak to and cheer on anyone seeking to live life as fully as possible. "Denver Post"
A shockingly honest, revealing, and inspiring memoir. "Trail Runner"

I was also very much moved by his quest to lead a natural life, through his running and through his eating. I was a vegetarian for several years, then I slipped back into eating meat. Reading Jurek's book made me go back to not eating meat, but more importantly, it helped make me much more conscious of the ethics of how and what we eat. What and how we eat are not just things we do, it's who we are. Scott Jurek makes that point in simple and profound ways in this book, but he always does it with humility. He's not preaching, not proselytizing, not moralizing, just explaining how he has chosen to live his life and why.
