Quotes & Awards

  • “The surprise here isn’t that Scott Jurek knows a lot about nutrition—I especially love his ‘Holy Moly Guacamole’ recipe. Or that he ran prodigious mileage to prepare for his many ultramarathon victories. More impressively, we discover that Jurek studied many of the great philosophers, and used their lessons to focus his running. In pursuing the mental side of endurance, Jurek uncovers the most important secrets any runner can learn.”

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Review by Angie | 2/18/2014

    " Excellent excellent book. Once I finished I wanted to read it again. Very inspiring and a very fun read. Jurek has many ways of finding similarities with his reader. It's like you're right there next to him. The book is almost worth it just for the recipes. Lentil mushroom burgers are a must try. "

    " Growing up in Proctor, skiing with Sorens, going to the same church, hanging out with Scott's siblings were all parts of my childhood. What I didn't realize was Dusty sold me my skis all through school from ski hut, and a lot of his rice milk recipes are my lifestyle with alleregy kiddos. After seeing some of the awesome recipes and not being able to wait to try them I am tempted to go shopping now! Great book, great memories of the past in small town and a great tribute to a great runner, definitely a keeper of a book. "

    " Very interesting guy. I had no idea anyone every ran ultramarathons of 100 miles or more. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Review by Crystal | 1/28/2014

    " This was ok. Well written, mostly-inspiring (although it bordered on self-aggrandizement, I got the feeling the author was trying hard to avoid the tone "look how awesome I am!"), and a quick read. I was ready for it to be done by the end, and skimmed the last few race stories. I'm still not convinced that a vegan diet is the only way to health. "
