Eat & run : my unlikely journey to ultramarathon greatness by Scott Jurek( Book )

12 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 1,166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For nearly two decades, Scott Jurek has been a dominant force in the grueling and growing sport of ultrarunning. In 1999, as a compete unknown, he took the lead of the Western States Endurance Run, a 100-mile traverse over the old Gold Rush trails of the California Sierra Nevada. He won that race seven years in a row, setting a course record along the way. Twice he won the Badwater Ultramarathon, a 135-mile "jaunt" through Death Valley. Recently he set an American record of 165.7 miles in 24 hours--l 1/2 marathons in one day. And he was one of the elite runners who traveled to Mexico to run with the Tarahumara Indians, as profiled in the bestseller Born to Run. His accomplishments are nothing short of extraordinary, but that he has achieved all of this on a plant-based diet makes his story all the more so. In Eat and Run, Scott Jurek opens up about his life and career--as an elite athlete and a vegan--and inspires runners at every level. From his midwestern childhood hunting, fishing, and cooking for his meat-and-potatoes family, to his early beginnings in running (he hated it), to his slow transition to ultrarunning and veganism, to his world-spanning, record-breaking races, Scott's story shows the power of an iron will and blows apart all the stereotypes of what athletes should eat to fuel optimal performance. Chock-full of incredible, on-the-brink stories of endurance and competitions, fascinating science, and accessible practical advice--including his own favorite plant-based recipes--Eat and Run will motivate everyone to "go the distance," whether that means getting out for that first run, expanding your food horizons, or simply exploring the limits of your own potential

This documentary tells the story of America's first mountain adventure race, which took place in 1911 in Whatcom County, Washington. The geographic goal of the race was Mt. Baker, a 10,781 foot volcanic peak set in a vast wilderness area about 30 miles from Bellingham. Participants were to travel to the base of Mt. Baker, climb to the summit and back down, then return to Bellingham. Fourteen runners started out but very few crossed the finish line, where a prize purse of 100 dollars in gold awaited them

Go the distance Mit "Eat & Run" hat Scott Jurek die Geschichte seines Lebens niedergeschrieben und die seiner Karriere - als Ausnahmeathlet und Veganer. Er erzählt von seiner Kindheit im mittleren Westen der USA, den Jagd- und Angelausflügen und den gemeinsamen Mahlzeiten mit seiner "meat-and-potatoes"-Familie sowie von seinen frühen Laufanfängen. Aber er beschreibt auch seine langsame Wandlung hin zum Ultraläufer und Veganer sowie seine unglaublichen Erfolge bei noch unglaublicheren Rennen. Sein Leben zeigt mehr als deutlich, wie wichtig ein starker Wille ist, aus dem wir die Kraft schöpfen, Aussergewöhnliches zu leisten. Randvoll mit spannenden Geschichten, wissenschaftlichen Fakten und praktischen Ratschlägen, inklusive Jureks veganen Lieblingsrezepten, motiviert dieses Buch jeden, durchzuhalten - egal, ob es darum geht, sein erstes Rennen zu starten, mehr über die eigene Ernährung nachzudenken oder das persönliche Potenzial auszuschöpfen. "Jeder kann ein Ultraläufer sein" ist das Motto von Scott Jurek und seine Autobiografie erinnert daran, dass jeder Tag eine Entdeckungsreise ist, auf der wir herausfinden können, was im Sport möglich ist - und im Leben
