Jurek's inspiring story is all laid out in his book. Take a look at the trailer.
If you ARE interested in going, you should know, however, that in order to get your copy of Eat & Run signed, you will have to buy it at Book People. Just an fyi, everyone.
But the lovely people at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt have given me two copies of Scott Jurek's Eat & Run to give away to YOU! If you would like to win a copy, all you have to do is leave a comment on this post ensuring that you use a valid email address when you login. Don't worry, your contact information will remain between me and you and I won't sign you up for any mailing lists I promise!
The deadline for entries will be June 25th, so you have 10 days within which to enter starting now.
If you're not in Austinite, Jurek will be making appearances in San Diego, Minneapolis, East Lansing, Grand Rapids, Seattle, and Denver later in the month. If you're an athlete, a vegan, or just someone who needs a little inspiration, you should definitely take the opportunity to attend one of these events. Be sure to visit Jurek's official website for more information about his life and his book.
Have a great day!
