The Amazing Running Man!

Are you a runner? Or walker, biker, trotter? What's the furthest distance you have gone?
If you are like most people you put in a few miles and call it a good work out. If you are Dean Karnazes, you start running-- and simply never stop. Apparently the Energizer Bunny does exist in human form.

Last Thursday at my running group Dean Karnazes was in town and he came and ran with us. Having heard stories about this guy running 50 marathons, in 50 states in 50 days, racing in subzero weather in Antarctica, dashing across the width of the continental US, and bounding through the sweltering temperatures of Death Valley on his way up Mt. Whitney, I was expecting a machine-man that only vaguely resembled a human.

However, Dean turned out to be a super down to earth dude that simply just loved to run. It's nice to see someone that turned their passion into something profitable and inspiring - cheers to that!
