In this touching account, ultramarathon legend Scott Jurek tells the story of his life and his search for meaning through inhumanly long trail runs. Jurek is not only a phenomenal athlete but an extraordinary human being, who defined the status quo by winning absurdly long races (100+ miles!) on a vegan diet. As a bonus, he adds his excellent recipes for those of us looking for inspiration.
