"Daniloff’s raw descriptions of his alcohol and drug abuse...are some of the most compelling parts of the book. They harshly illustrate the destruction of addiction and the courage it takes to walk away and build a new life." Booklist "Daniloff’s unblinking, ultimately triumphant account of his journey from mean, hopeless drunk back to humanity and himself—through distance running. It’s a searing tale of spiritual redemption—one marathon, one mile, one brave, difficult step at a time." Steve Friedman, co-author of Eat and run: My Unlikely Path to Ultramarathon Greatness Caleb Daniloff has written for Runner’s World and The Boston Globe. He has been a commentator on Vermont Public Radio and contributed to NPR's All Things Considered. Recipient of the 2005 Ralph Nading Hill, Jr. Literary Prize, he runs thirty to forty miles a week.

Ultramarathoner Scott Jurek will be participating in a special Group Run & Book Signing event on Saturday, June 16th at Movin Shoes, 1892 Garnet Ave., San Diego, 92109. Starting at 8:00am runners can join Scott at Movin Shoes for a group run returning to Movin Shoes at 9:00am.

Warwick's will be the onsite bookseller for this event.
For nearly two decades, Scott Jurek has been a dominant force in the grueling and growing sport of ultrarunning. In 1999, as a complete 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. He triumphed in the 153-mile Spartathlon in Greece three times. And he was one of the elite runners who traveled to Mexico to run with the Tarahumara Indians, as profiled in the runaway 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 competition as well as 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 their food horizons, or simply exploring the limits of their own potential.
