Happy Halloween, Scott Jurek!

Excuse me, ma'am, is that vegan chocolate? I dress up as Scott Jurek for Halloween.

Boo! What could be scarier than a carrot-munching, quinoa-fuelled, seven-time winner of the Western States 100-Mile Endurance Run? You guessed it. Me, dressed up as the man himself, Scott Jurek.

Call me lazy, but one of the nice things about being a member of the Brooks Canada ID Program is that I’m a wig away from the perfect running-themed Halloween costume. Throw on a headband and a pair of compression socks and toss around a few useful suggestions about how to properly transition to a plant-based diet et voila! I defy you to spot the difference between Scott and me. Sure, maybe only one or two people knew who I was, even in a crowded store full of runners getting ready to head out for this morning’s run or at the post-race event following the James Cunningham Seawall Race, but I don’t care. Today, I am Scott Jurek!

UPDATE — I like that even Scott Jurek dresses up as Scott Jurek for Halloween.
