Today's reading talked a lot about energy and featured some incredible athletes that follow a vegan diet for the nutrition they need to perform at their best. One that really stood out to me was Scott Jurek.

At fifteen he was skiing and decided to become an Ironman. At twenty he entered his first ultramarathon (50 miles) and came in second place. Over the next few years he came in first place at the following races:

  • seven times champ and world record holder for the Western States Endurance Run (100 miles)
  • one time winner of the Badwater Ultramarathon (135 miles)
  • three time conqueror of the Spartathlon, running from Athens to Sparta in one stretch (153 miles)
And can you believe that this is all on fruit, vegetables, rice, beans, and potatoes? This guy completely blows my mind. I don't even know what to say. Check him out:
