Remember last week when we you told you that ultramarathoner/vegan warrior Scott Jurek was training for a 24-Hour World Championship run in Brive-la-Gaillarde, France? Well…HE SET A FRIGIN AMERICAN RECORD!!

The plant-powered athlete finished in second place at the competition this past weekend, running 165.284 miles in 24 hours. Seriously, my feeble treadmill-jogging legs can’t even comprehend running that distance.

Earlier this month, Jurek shared the secret to his success with the New York Times: hard work and a vegan diet.

“None of this is weird,” he said. “If you go back 300 or 400 years, meat was reserved for special occasions, and those people were working hard. Remember, almost every long-distance runner turns into a vegan while they’re racing, anyway — you can’t digest fat or protein very well.”

A huge high-five goes out to Scott from all of us here at Ecorazzi! Keep living green and taking names!
