Book: EAT & RUN

EAT & RUN: My Unlikely Journey to Ultramarathon Greatness (New York, NY: Houghton Miffling Harcourt, 2012)

Do you like a good autobiography, especially when the author is one of the  “good guys”? If so, I think you might enjoy this book a lot.

Once I picked it up, I struggled to put this one down. Why? Because I saw a lot of things in Scott’s life story that inspired me. 

In addition, I simply enjoyed the way the book was written. It really let me get to know the author and feel the challenges he faced in all areas of his life. 

Building on his midwest roots and solid family values, Scott added amazing training discipline and “iron will” that helped him set records in ultramarathon races around the world.

Something that makes his story even more amazing is that unlike most runners, and most of the population, his diet is plant-based. He’s a vegan as well as an elite athlete!

I’m a sucker for true “feel good” stories like this because they remind me that most human beings (including me)  are capable of far more than they believe possible.
