Eat and Run: My Unlikely Journey to Ultramarathon Greatness
In a sport that already dances on the fringe of society, ultrarunner Scott Jurek is a true rarity. As one of the athletes who helped make ultramarathons—any race longer than In July, he completed a run across the entire Appalachian Trail , breaking the speed record by over three hours. He finished in 46 days, eight hours, and seven minutes. On top of all this, Jurek also happens to be an accomplished home cook and vegan—he shared his story and favorite recipes in his book, Eat and Run. The plant-based diet, he says, has contributed to his success as a runner, allowing him faster recovery times and better endurance on the trail. So, with all this in mind, we were curious to chat with Jurek about how he eats on the run heh, heh , what foods fueled his AT record, and what he likes to cook at home.
It was published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt on June 5, It relates Jurek's childhood in Minnesota, his growing interest in sport, family life and career. It also covers his change in eating habits, from a standard meat-eating diet through to vegetarianism and finally becoming a vegan. Each chapter ends with one of his favorite vegan recipes.
