Meeting Running Rock Stars

Today, I met running royalty.

I was lucky enought to attend the book reading and presentation for “Eat & Run” from Scott Jurek and Steve Friedman.

The panel, hosted by Christopher McDougall, “Born to Run”‘s author, featured Ultramarathoner and demi-God Scott Jurek, Writer and journalist Steve Friedman and Actor and now director for the film version of BTR, Peter Saarsgard.

In the event, the panelist shared anecdotes of each other, how they met, what drives them to run and compete.

It was a really nice event and I felt completely geeky and starstruck to meet Scott and Chris. Peter Saarsgard, whom I am sure is used to be in the center of the spotlight, was outshone by these idols of the running world and he humbly took a step behind letting them be the stars.

 

I was delighted and honored to finally  meet two of the people that have continued to inspire me through my journey as a runner..

Can’t wait to read my book 🙂
