"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
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"

And also like Finding Ultra’s writer, Rich Roll, Scott Jurek is also a vegan, or ‘plant based athlete’ which seems to be the more politically correct term vegan athletes are choosing theses days. And sprinkled liberally throughout the book are lots of Scott’s favourite recipes for you to try if you so wish. In a lot of ways it’s like a vegan cook book with a great story shoved in between the recipes.
Well worth a read. Especially for those with any designs on endurance training or participating in endurance sports.
I'm not a vegan and I hate tails that start with "I was a hopeless drunk/drug addict" and so on. This book however explains how unlikely things can be of great benafit to any runner. I really enjoyed the positive vain that runs all the way through this book. It's not preaching and it's not self help and I think it applies to both new runners and ultra runners along with everyone in between.
Read this book as a runner and you will not be disappointed, if anything it'll probably make you start thinking how far you can push yourself. Even if you are not a runner and just enjoy stories of human beings achieving seemingly impossible feats or a good story and nothing more, this is a great book and it;ll leave you with at least a few recipes and if nothing else, a smile on your face and a good all round feeling about the capabilities we all have within us.
