Eat and Run by Scott Jurek

Eat and Run is the inspiring and true story of the vegan ultra-marathoner who hated running as a child, and has come to triumph in some of the longest races in the world. Scott Jurek deals with concepts of food as fuel as well as his own history that brought him to a point where he can complete 100+ mile races in record times. Powerful and motivating, it certainly makes me want to get out of bed in the morning.
