Description:

For nearly two decades, Scott Jurek has been a dominant force — and darling — in the grueling and growing sport of ultrarunning. In 1999, a complete unknown, he took the lead in the Western States Endurance Run, a 100-mile jaunt over the Gold Rush trails of the Sierra Nevada. He went on to win that race seven years in a row. Jurek was also one of the elite runners who traveled to Mexico to run with the Tarahumara Indians, as profiled in the bestsellerBorn to Run. Jurek’s accomplishments are nothing short of extraordinary — and all achieved on a plant-based diet.   InEat and Run,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 of hunting and fishing to his slow transition to ultrarunning and veganism to his epic, record-breaking races, Jurek’s story shows the power of an iron will and the importance of thinking of food as fuel. Full of stories of endurance and competition as well as practical advice and some of his original recipes,Eat and Runwill motivate people to go the distance, whether that means getting out for a first run, expanding food horizons, or simply exploring the limits of human potential.
