Publisher Description

“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

Great Book

Different from Born to Run in great ways... A few stories overlap and it's awesome to get inside Scott's head and see them from his point of view...

Beyond an amazing athlete; he's an amazing person...

Just the Inspiration I Needed

Had lost some of my determination to run after some set-backs. Just reading the first chapter got me out for a short run again after more than a month without it. Scott Jurek reminded me why I love running.

And as a lacto-ovo-vegetarian, aspiring to reduce my animal-product intake, I can't wait to try the recipes.

I finished all my nails

I ate all of my finger nails waiting for this book.
Since it came out I started to eat my fingers.

It's an absolute pleasure reading this book.
Its like suckling fresh milk from a wild goat;
It'll nourish your mind and body.
