Today is the final part of our interview series with Ultraman, Rich Roll and author of the upcoming book: Finding Ultra. To read part 1 & 2 of our interview with Rich, please see our post on Monday and Tuesday and Wednesday.
We want to thank Rich so much for inspiring us this week! We are also thrilled that Rich will be joining us as one of the speakers at our Farms 2 Forks Immersions! You can hear his incredible story in person at our San Francisco and New York Farms 2 Forks Events!
E2: Tell us about your book.
Rich: On the surface, FINDING ULTRA is my memoir of personal transformation from out of shape and overweight middle-aged couch potato to accomplished plant-based ultra-endurance athlete. But between the lines, it’s the story of a guy who discovered a new way of life — rebirth in healthy nutrition and fitness. The story of someone who took his life back and began living in accordance with his heart to discover his true and most authentic self. The story of a normal guy who mustered the courage to place faith in his heart, and by doing so was able to accomplish things beyond his wildest dreams.
Along the way, I take the reader through how I did it. And how you can too, including a robust primer on the ins and outs of plant-based nutrition complete with resources; what, how and when I eat to fuel athletic success; and how we as a family make it all functional and sustainable within the construct of our busy lives.
The book comes out May 22 in hardback, e-book and audiobook formats, but is available now for pre-order on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iTunes and a variety of other online booksellers. For more information, visit my site HERE, as well as the FINDING ULTRA Facebook Page.
