When something bad happens, you have three choices: let it define you, let it destroy you, or let it strengthen you.

The heart of the difference is not ability or even talent, but desire

The purpose of life is to discover and develop your gift. The meaning of life comes from sharing your gift with others. - David Viscott

Scott Jurek on a book tour.

Scott Jurek (do we really need an introduction here?) had stooped in Austin during his book tour for "Eat and run". After I had acquired a personal note for Joe and Joyce Prusaitis of Tejas Trails on a book, Scott went on a 5k run with 100 folks from Luke's Locker, and I hung out with Jenny catching up on scoop. At "Book People" where the reading and signing was conducted, the store ran out of books! It was not cool and quite disappointing to a fan population (and Scott).

I highly recommend a book, a visit with a down-to-Earth Scott, a hug with Jenny, and a "working hard' approach for your training and anything you desire in life. This guy is real. Not a one (or few) hit-wonder.


  1. Wah!!!! I am so sad I couldn't go. Monday nights are just not a good night for me to head out. It looks like the book is really doing well! Great pictures.

  2. Scott is awesome! Hey, I noticed after the fact there was a group from Austin at Beacon Rock 50k this past weekend!

  3. I love the book so far! It's just like Scott and such a great motivational read.

  4. On my radar the next trip to book store.

  5. So great you got to hook up with Scott, Olga! I keep missing his signings, but hope to get to one soon!

  6. We just had the honor of running/meeting him here in Lansing MI. He is a great guy!
