Drooling over Scott Jurek
I want to share a video I've been obsessing over. Or, I should be more honest and say, person I've been obsessing over. After I read Born To Run, I was fascinated by the individual stories of the people that Christopher McDougall portrayed in his book. I wanted to know more about Caballo Blanco. More about Barefoot Ted. And especially, I found myself intrigued by Scott Jurek. He has a new book coming out on June 5th titled Eat and Run: My Unlikely Journey to Ultramarathon Greatness.
Jurek has been promoting a vegan life-style, and considering his success, I'd say he knows what he is talking about. If only I could give up the In & Out and sushi, I could be a plant-only eater. Maybe some day. I'm going to blame that as the only reason I'm not busting out 266 miles in under 24 hours...just to prove I could. Yeah, he did that.
Anyway, this video kinda crunches up Born To Run into a little bite size nugget. You could read the whole book, or watch this. I find the video particularly exciting because it places a face behind the name.
