Scott Jurek ("with Steve Friedman") is an elite ultrarunner. His 2012 autobiography Eat & Run: My Unlikely Journey to Ultramarathon Greatness shares some of the problems that weighed down Bart Yasso's My Life on the Run: pride, padding, and self-promotion. Jurek's personal upbringing was a rough one, and he overcame it to set numerous records at vast distances. But pop philosophy founded on Vegan Power? ("What we eat is a matter of life and death. Food is who we are.") And recipes at the ends of each chapter? Maybe not.
