However, a recent renovation project has brought a much-needed upgrade to the dated facilities.

A different kind of dine and dash

Author Scott Jurek talks about 'Eat & Run' Wednesday at Playmakers

by Bill Castanier
Tuesday, June 19 — As an eighth-grader in rural Minnesota, Scott Jurek hated running. As a high-schooler, he only ran to stay in shape for Nordic skiing. Today, Jurek, 38, is one of the world’s best ultramarathoners and thinks nothing of going out for a 30- or 40-mile run twice a week while logging 120-mile weeks.
