Scott_Jurek

As I am sure many of you already know, vegan ultra-runner Scott Jurek set a new world record by running the Appalachian trail, a 2,189-mile journey in 46 days, 8 hours, and 7 minutes. He beat the previous record by 3 hours. He holds numerous other world records for ultra-running.

It’s an understatement to say that much of the vegan community(and running comunity) was thrilled when Jurek completed yesterday. I know I was. I’m really happy for Jurek, he’s one of the ultimate vegan role models. It’s moments like these when we can really drive home the message that a vegan lifestyle is not a limiting one. Congratulations Scott Jurek! You’re one of the most inspiring people in the world! Vegans rejoice!

As for joggling the Appalachian trail: Will keep everyone posted when and if that happens.
