I was disappointed to learn that he did this, with the help of a dozen support staff, just to set a record (and to write a book).

When I was looking at the Boston Marathon Expo events I saw that Scott Jurek was going to be at the Clif booth giving out autographed copies of his new book. I followed his journey to break the speed record on the Appalachian Trail and the hubby really does love following ultra running, so I was stoked to pick up a copy of the book. We were able to grab one at the Expo and I flew through it on the flight home from Boston. If you don't know, Scott Jurek is an AMAZING ultra runner with a ton of victories and records under his belt. This book is laid out in a diary format (with him writing a bit, followed by his wife {who crewed him during the entire journey} writing a bit). With our upcoming Rim2Rim2Rim adventure coming soon (although I know that 44ish miles is NO WHERE NEAR 2,189 miles), I loved getting the opportunity to read about the good, bad and ugly of this run/hike-thru attempt. I would give it a 9 out of 10.
