I heard about this guy by accident last week. I’d heard his name before on an AT board once. But I didn’t read much about him. But after hearing about what he’s doing next, I had to buy his book. I started and finished it yesterday, in one sitting. Dean Karnazes is going to run 50 marathons in 50 states in 50 days. And you people thought I was crazy. Nope, not even close. I’m quite sane compared to this guy. But after reading his book, I think he’s totally amazing. He does a lot of his ultra runs now as charity fundraisers for children needing medical care. I can understand the why because I’ve asked myself some of the same questions under much shorter distances. I could relate to some of the pain he’s described, and I’ve felt some of those same feelings. Why? Because it’s there. And I want to see if I can. I’ll definitely watch out for when he’s in Dallas. He’s using the White Rock Course as his Texas stop.


  1. That’s amazing and if I could do it, I would. I mean, to be so totally fit that you can endure this…go for it. Good luck on your runs!!
