This is well worth your time. Scott has been promoting this book for a few months now and I was fortunate enough to catch him at the Fleet Feet book signing event a few months back. The fun run kicked it all off. It was a short 3 or 4 miles along the Embarcadero. Afterwards he told a few stories to enrich the book and then took questions from the crowd. He played a few games to give away a few books and then started signing autographs for those who wanted one. This was a really good time, very laid back and I will definetly go to this event after enjoying it so much the first time around. For those of you who are unfamiliar with who Scott is or what this book is about a short promo statement below sums it up perfectly. Click on the picture of the book to purchase your copy. Show up to the event with your already read copy in true fan style!!!

From the event Website:
Eat & Run - My Unlikely Journey to Ultramarathon Greatness by Scott Jurek is featured on the New York Times Bestseller List and has received remarkable ultramarathon community support. The book follows Scott's "Unlikely" story of becoming an elite ultramarathon runner all the while accomplishing it as a dedicated Vegan. To some, veganism alone is a challenge in and of itself aside from running ultra distances and many have commented that this combination is "impossible".
Sports Basement is elated to have Scott Jurek visiting the Presidio location to share his book and thoughts on eating and running as well as lead those in attendance on a picturesque run along Crissy Field to the Golden Gate Bridge and back. You'll run with an elite 'distance adventurer', enjoy a Q&A session and copies of the book will be available for purchase to have autographed by the author himself.
Complimentary snacks and refreshments will be provided. Enjoy!
