Changing sport here but I know it will interest plenty of members, I picked up a copy of a new book on the Lance Armstrong scandal, last Saturday. The Wheelmen. Written by two Wall Street journalists. And boy what a read it is!
Will review it when I've finished as it is too good a book to give a half hearted review.
Currently reading, really a confidence-booster for avoiding animal products and still feel strong!
Eat & Run: My Unlikely Journey to Ultramarathon Greatness is a 2012 autobiography by ultramarathon champion Scott Jurek and Steve Friedman. It was published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt on June 5, 2012. The book was an instant New York Times best seller, debuting at #7 in hardback non-fiction and remained in the bestseller lists into the next month. It has been translated into twenty different languages.
It relates Jurek's childhood in Minnesota, his growing interest in sport, family life and career. It also covers his change in eating habits, from a standard meat-eating diet through to vegetarianism and finally becoming a vegan. Each chapter ends with one of his favorite vegan recipes.
