Ever since I read “Born to Run”, I have admired the phenomenal achievements of Scott Jurek.
What endears him is that he seems like a great person first and then a great athlete. It is this quality of his that led me to buy and read his book Eat and Run.
The book provides the reader a peek into Scott’s mental strength and his grueling training schedules. It gives us a ring side view of his battles with his doubts, injuries and childhood memories during his meteoric rise to fame as the seven time consecutive champion of the Western states 100 Ultra-marathon.
Every time we feel that we have hit a personal wall, people like Scott show up and redefine the boundaries of human endurance.
Thank you, Scott. Thank you for telling me that sometimes, you just do things.
