Ultramarathon Man – Dean Karnazes

I have been meaning to blog about Dean Karnazes for a long time, but just never got around to it.  Simply put he is amazing.  Dean is hands down one of the best endurance athletes on the planet, but that is only half of the story.  His ability to motivate and inspire people on a mass scale is unbelievable.  It you don’t believe me that Dean is “the man”, just check him out on Wikipedia.

I initially heard about Dean in Runners World and then read his book Ultramarathon Man: Confession of an All-Night Runner.  The book was a serious page turner that I could not put down.  He talks about training for his first 100 mile race, ordering pizzas while on the run, the first South Pole marathon, the list goes on and on…

Then I picked up the documentary DVD Ultramarathon Man: 50 Marathons – 50 States – 50 Days.  The title is pretty self explainatory, but yes, he ran 50 marathons in 50 states in 50 consecutive days.  It is a really inspiring and motivating film.  I highly recommend it.
