Scott Jurek Breaks American 24-Hour Race Record

Scott Jurek, famous ultramarathoner, shares the secret for staying in shape and energized: a well-balanced plant-based diet. In fact, Jurek was set on breaking the American record, 162 miles, held by Mark Godale at the 24-Hour Run in Brive-la-Gaillarde, France. It is a grueling race to determine how many miles runners can complete on a 1.4-kilometer road loop (about nine-tenths of a mile) in a 24-hour period. Did he do it? Yes, he actually finished second in the race and ran more than 165.7 miles over 24 hours to win the silver medal.
