Although I have never had aspirations towards veganism I fully respect and relate to the arguments Scott puts forward to his leanings but again he appears to be no pontificating zealot. his basic inclusions for tips on running technique should be considered as gold dust for any aspiring ultra runner, that's coming from someone who just completed his first competition run, a 70mile ultra with no problems whatsoever by employing practically all the said advice, barefoots good & race flats rule!
I was truly inspired by his courage and strength both mentally and physically and it was such a joy to follow his journey throughout this book. His recipes at the end of each chapter are simply an added bonus, especially if you are vegetarian and it's useful to know why certain foods are important in (a runners) diet. I wasn't aware of many of these races yet after reading the book I felt I had been introduced to places and cultures I hadn't known existed which in itself is inspiring and educational. Every bit of his success is well deserved and he has my utmost respect and admiration. I have no aspirations to compete in an ultra marathon but my own goal to run a marathon next year seems now quite a modest achievement but one that with the right training and mindset I know I will achieve. Thanks Scott, a fantastic book!
At a personal level I found the `Run' details in the book, including the information on his formative years, training techniques and race details more interesting than the `Eat' sections.
As a meat eater I am not sure if I will make many of the recipes in the book, and found it slightly frustrating when a recipe is dropped in at the end of the chapters (only complaint of the book). That said it certainly caused me to think and review my current diet.
Overall, an educational, interesting and inspiring book that the majority of runners will find enjoyable, especially those that follow a vegetarian or vegan diet.
