Sport personalities: Scott Jurek
Scott Jurek, seven-time winner of the Western States marathon and
two-time winner of the Badwater Ultramarathon (including this year’s),
gives a lot of credit to his plant-based diet.
Let’s keep in mind that the Badwater Ultramarathon Covers 135 miles
(217km) non-stop from Death Valley to Mt. Whitney, CA in temperatures up
to 130F (55C), making it the most demanding and extreme running race
offered anywhere on the planet.
Jurek, a vegan athlete, competes in 10-12 marathons per year and is
living proof that even world-class athletes can thrive without any
animal protein in their diet.
