Friday Inspiration: Scott Jurek

I just finished reading Scott Jurek’s memoir/cookbook Eat and Run.  Its surprisingly good. It reminded me that, while Jurek is pretty far out there on the spiritual end of the running, eh is thoughtful and articulate on the interplay between the science of running and the sports more spiritual dimensions.

So, in honor of the Jurker, here’s a great clip of him with Kilian Jornet. Check out the scene where Jurker hips Jornet to the Bone Games, by Rob Schultheis, an old book on the spiritual aspects of ultra-endurance sports oh and make sure to turn on the subtitles!

  1. Thanks for posting that video. I’ve never run an ultra but I do believe spiritual strength, combined with mental toughness would be a huge plus.
