You might want to check out Jurek's book, Eat and Run. Even if you skip past all the "this is how I became an amazing runner" stuff, he has some really just rock solid vegan recipes in there, including for race-day items, I highly recommend it.

For any of you vegan runners or aspiring runners, Eat and Run by Scott Jurek is a very good read and has a recipe after each chapter.

  1. Books - Bought Faster Road Racing a few days ago. Hoping to gain some wisdom from the pros.
  2. Training programs - In the past, whatever I found online that fit my schedule.
  3. Reading - A while ago I read Eat and Run by Scott Jurek. I was amazed at how he made the best of whatever little he had growing up. Lots of good info about food and running.
  4. Podcasts - I don't listen to any running related podcasts. I did listen to episode RA068 of Runner Academy podcast only because it featured Peter Sagal from NPR. I'm a big fan of Wait Wait Don't Tell Me.

You might want to look at Racing Weight ( - I haven't read more than a few pages in a book store yet, but its on my list to pick up and has some recipes indexed in the back.

I also just finished Eat and Run ( - The last chapter or two is all vegan recipes, if you're into that sort of thing.

I ate squirrel once. It was with out hunting with friends in the middle of nowhere. We made a stew, but it still tasted like something that should not be eaten....OMG the taste memory is coming back to me now :s

Would love this book or a surprise :)

Have a good weekend and stay away from gross food!

As I mentioned in another comment, I went completely vegan overnight about a month before I ran my first half marathon. My diet before going vegan was very heavy on meat, eggs, and cheese, so it was a BIG change for my body. The results? I felt better than I'd ever felt before, with tons of energy. I recovered from my runs more quickly, I ran faster, and I completed my half marathon about 15 minutes faster than I had thought I was capable. I've been vegan ever since then, and have run a couple marathons (8 weeks apart) as well as doing high mileage on trails (longest run was 30 miles on some gnarly trails). I was vegan all through a pregnancy while continuing to run, and am now running about 40-45 mpw and feel great on a vegan diet.

I have heard that the book Eat and Run by vegan ultrarunner Scott Jurek is very good, although I myself haven't read it.

"Eat & Run" by Scott Jurek is a great, quick read. Jurek is one of the greatest ultra-marathoners ever and was featured in Born to Run, etc. He writes about how his upbringing affected his impressive ability to endure, his unconventional training methods, and his strict vegan diet. It also includes some pretty delicious recipes...

... That being said, "Born to Run" is one of my favorite books of all time. Everyone, runner or not, should read it.

Honestly, i don't read a ton of fitness books... just no need really, but i have read a couple good ones:

Born to run

Omnivore's dilemma

Eat and run
