“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

  • Amazing book!

    From kdscomox
    I very much enjoyed this book. As a physiotherapist and endurance athlete myself, I find his book an excellent combination of narrative, inspiration and down to earth advice on ultrarunning. I initially purchased the book as an audiobook to listen to on long runs, and have since downloaded the e-version so I can have access to his great recipes. This is a must read for recreational runners as well as the elite, and even for those athletes who simply want to eat a whole food plant based diet and have no idea where to start.
  • Excellent du début à la fin

  • Eat & Run by Scott Jurek

    From Martin.dinel
    I thoroughly enjoyed this book, which was an interesting mix of a fantastic athlete's biography, a history book about ultra-marathon running, a cookbook for eating well, and a runner's coaching book! I enjoyed reading it from cover to cover. Nice anecdotes and stories every runner... Well... Every human being can actually relate to! It was an insight into Scott Jurek's life, what drives him to run as hard as he does, as well as the realization that he is a normal human being with doubts and some weaknesses. Great book also to promote the benefits of a plant-based diet! I have tried a few of the delicious recipes myself. Well worth trying! If you need a bit of motivation with your running, as well as some advice because you are either an athlete considering a plant based diet, or someone who is considering to run your first ultra (or get better at it), then this is a very good and entertaining choice! Great summer vacation read! Martin
