  • Couldn’t agree more with @Brad…Thank you for this. When I saw who the guest was I did a double take—”Scott Jurek?! What the what!?” What a great podcast. As a vegan trail runner (with a vegan trail runner wife) I am continually amazed and inspired at what Scott Jurek has done and continues to do. Hearing how a plant-based diet has helped Scott continue to run and recover motivates the choices my wife and I make. It isn’t as difficult as people think—plus, it helps to motivate your cooking skills.

    Thanks again for this. I am sure that I will be listening to it a few more times.

  • Loved listening to Scott Jurek. Very interesting. Also, a little confusing for me. There are some competing viewpoints in the running world: Vegan, vegetarian, paleo… ack! Which is the right approach for me? I suspect like most things running related since we are a sample of 1, we have to experiment and figure out what works for us individually.

  • Thanks again,
    I’m getting caught up on TRN podcasts and every one is a treat! Thank you Scott for sharing your knowledge and time.

    MIchael, I’m with you. I think paleo makes more sense, but I think we each need to do what helps us live better, for different people that will be different. I LOVE TRN for bringing us so much information. More important, the interviewees aren’t nazi about their life choices, they state this is what works for them. They will help anyone who is interested in that path, and love and respect those who aren’t.

    Thank you again,
