Eat & Run
Eat & Run: My Unlikely Journey to Ultramarathon Greatness is a 2012 autobiography by ultramarathon champion Scott Jurek and Steve Friedman. It was published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt on June 5, 2012. The book was an instant New York Times best seller, debuting at #7 in hardback non-fiction and remained in the bestseller lists into the next month. It has been translated into twenty different languages.
In Eat & Run, Scott Jurek opens up about his life and career — as an elite athlete and a vegan — and inspires runners at every level. From his Midwestern childhood of hunting, fishing, and cooking for his meat-and-potatoes family, to his early beginnings in running (he hated it), to his slow transition to ultrarunning and veganism, to his incredible, world-spanning, record-breaking races — Scott’s story shows the power of an iron will and the importance of thinking of our food as our fuel.
Chock full of incredible, on-the-brink stories of endurance and competition, as well as fascinating science and accessible practical advice — including his own favorite plant based recipes, Eat & Run will motivate everyone to “go the distance” whether that means getting out for that first run, expanding your food horizons, or simply exploring the limits of your own potential.
Green Giants is proud to welcome Scott Jurek to the family as an example of what can be accomplished when we treat the earth, our body and mind as one.
