Book Review: Eat and Run by Scott Jurek and Steve Friedman

Eat and Run: My Unlikely Journey to Ultramarathon Greatness

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

I loved Scott’s other book about attempting to set a new fastest known time record on the Appalachian Trail. If I’m going to be honest, this book fell short of my expectations. Maybe because I find vegans to be annoying at times. The joke goes “How can you tell if someone is a vegan?” “They will tell you.” Before the vegans give me shit out there, I was a vegan for a couple years. So calm down.

I enjoyed hearing about this life and how it applies to running but I just wasn’t into this book. Maybe I would have felt differently if I read this book first. Then again, I might not have read North if I read this book first. I gave this book 4 out of 5 stars on Goodreads. If you read this book, let me know your thoughts!
