My favorite running book. Scott really inspired me to run an ultra marathon.

Having first read about Scott Jurek in Born to Run, this book caught my eye. I was interested in learning more about him. His race stories were inspiring but some of the vegan evangelizing was annoying. I made an opposite journey from vegetarianism to eating much more animal protein and I‘m feeling much much better. But the book did what I needed it to do, fall in love with running again.

I only run when I'm late for the bus, but I really enjoyed reading this nonetheless.
