Eat and Run: My Unlikely Journey to Ultramarathon Greatness by Scott Jurek
Eat and Run: My Unlikely Journey to Ultramarathon Greatness

pensivepumpkin, January 1, 2013

I love this book. Love. Jurek has such an interesting personal story to me, and his attitude is legendary. Even more than that, I love the way his journey toward Veganism is portrayed not as some sort of epiphany or personal quest, but as an evolution. I've wanted to incorporate some of these ideas into my nutrition plan and didn't really know how. This work taught me that, and I've lost ten pounds of fat already since my body is no longer desperate for nutrients. Definite bonus. Beautiful book, part memoir, part training plan (yes, I've added some of his routes to my running bucket list) and even part cookbook given that there are recipes included.

Definitely a book you can read again. My favorite read for 2012.
