Review

Sure to inspire any runner about the power of an iron will and the importance of thinking of food as fuel. Body Fit Scott Jurek... is undoubtedly the greatest ultrarunner of his generation -- BOOK OF THE WEEK The Independent on Sunday You'll run faster, but feel like you're taking it easy. Men's Health

Product Description

'Run until you can't run anymore. Then run some more. Find a new source of energy and will. Then run even faster.' The words of Scott Jurek, a dominant force - and darling - in the gruelling and growing sport of ultrarunning for more than a decade. In 1999, as a complete unknown, he took the lead in the Western States Endurance Run, a 100-mile jaunt over the Gold Rush trails of America's Sierra Nevada. He went on to win that race seven years in a row. Jurek was also one of the elite runners who travelled to Mexico to run with the Tarahumara Indians, as profiled in the international bestseller Born to Run. His accomplishments are nothing short of extraordinary.

In Eat and Run, Jurek opens up about his life and career as an elite athlete, and about the vegan diet that is key to his success. 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 Run will motivate people to go the distance, whether that means getting out for a first run, expanding your food horizons, or simply exploring the limits of human potential.

I am swimming against the tide here, but I was underwhelmed by the book. I bought this book hoping that it would motivate me as a runner, which unfortunately didn't happen, because of the style of writing. The content is all good - Jurek throws in lots of anecdotes, expert knowledge of technique and recipes. Maybe the book is meant for serious runners, and not beginners like me - or possibly for a western, meat-eating audience. The book definitely encouraged me to go ahead with my plan of quitting meat in 2017.

Good book. Will read it again. This guy is still young, and so the story is quite current (unless you consider 15 years as prehistory, which may be the case in trail running). He was portrayed as a really good guy in Born To Run, and it is interesting to see his first person account. He goes on about his own suffering, and one wonders if he has had exposure to hopeless conditions in poorer nations. He is not particularly positive about his dad, and still seems shocked that his dad asked him to leave home. But think about it - dad with an unstable income, 3 young kids, wife in severe medical condition, the one I feel sorry for most are the parents, the mother who in her youth became paralyzed, unable to take care of 3 children she had recently given birth to, the dad who had to struggle to feed his family, raise them well, as well as take care of his wife. I think its justifiable that the dad would rather not have an undependable family member around.
Anyway, the heart of this book is the running. And that is fascinating. I will read again. And as for all the recipes. I don't know if I will get a chance to try any of them, but would be great if I do. I certainly cannot relate to the folks who read it in a few hours at one go, I took my time reading it.

The books gives insights of a sport very less known and appreciated. A book which tells story of a common man with not so common story. A man who struggled and learnt everything he had to through those struggles. A great athlete who lost almost everything for the sport he loves. It is such an humbling story and very thankful to have read this beautiful book. Simply one of my favourites. If you think Born to run was phenomenal then you will be equally or like me more entertained. Thank you Scott Jurek

It is good and interesting till Scott talks about the journey of self realisation through running... Thereafter race after race it seems pain is the path and not fulfillment that Scott chose for himself... Not a happy ending but a very honest account of the lifes journey written with modesty and simplicity
