Dean the Machine
I'm sure you've heard about the next amazing journey that one of our own is taking... Dean Karnazes is once again putting his ultra skills to the test. He has joined forces with LIVE! with Regis and Kelly to bring attention to childhood obesity and running across America. For three months he will be running 40 to 50 miles a day!!!! Two marathons a day, every day, for three months straight. Seriously. I can't even believe it myself.
I just finished reading 50/50 and was so impressed with not just his running but his genuine kindness of spirit. You can go here to see more about this challenge that he's taking on as well as dates and locations where you can run with him!!! I'm expecting EMZ to run with him in March and Kovas to run with him in April and of course to give us reports...
So amazing. You can also follow him on facebook as he will update and share experiences along the way. This will definitely be something I want to follow to see how he survives this challenge!
Will you follow? Do you care? Do you think he's crazy? Do you think his body can handle that kind of mileage for 3 months? Let's hear it...
