If you liked "Born to Run"...get this book!!!

It is a real person with a real life story. It isnt all happy endings and wonderful times. Scott has an amazing drive, and strong need to run, but we see that he is just a human too. So there is bad, good, and even harsh. I laughed out loud quite a few times, and cried quite a few as well, but I felt as though I was on the journey with him. I have even more respect for him after this book than I did after "Born to Run", which is where I learned about Scott. I have followed Scott since I read that book, and have enjoyed his career, and I find him very inspirational.

I was amazed by his candor, and ability to talk about some of the personal things he covers. It truly makes me ADMIRE him all the more.

If you liked "Born to Run", you will like this book. Please remember it is a personal memoir, not a bunch of different people's stories as in BtR. Although you do get to meet all of those characters from Scott's point of view.

I highly recommend this book!!!

OH...one more thing...Alot of the vegan receipts at the end are great!!! I went out and bought the hard copy for a cook book!!!

Great memoir, a must "read" for runners

If you could sum up Eat and Run in three words, what would they be?

Great context and in-depth look at one of the stars of Born to Run. Very much enjoyed the nutritional insights.


Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Quincy Dunn-Baker?

Someone who wasn't so abrasive in his reading style. Sometimes I felt like the reader made Scott seem like an angry guy with a big chip on his shoulder...very different from the spiritual vegan discussions at the end of each chapter. It was a little jarring.
