The inspiring journey of Dean Karnazes, an internationally recognised endurance athlete who has pushed his body and mind to inconceivable limits.
'Running with Karnazes is like setting up one's easel next to Monet or Picasso.' The New York Times
In his follow-up to the bestselling Ultramarathon Man, Dean Karnazes is back with more mind-blowing tales of how he pushes his mind and body to limits which are inconceivable to most of us.
In Run! Dean shares the pleasure - and considerable pain - of some of his most memorable adventures, including:
- a gentle 350-mile canter through the surprisingly hilly Australian Outback;
- his annual attempts at the Badwater Ultramarathon in Death Valley, California (typical temperature: 45 degrees); and
- the notorious 4 Deserts races, a masochist's delight encompassing four separate 155-mile runs across the Atacama Crossing, the Gobi, the Sahara and Antarctica...with rationed water.
Dean's entertaining and endearing stories are sure to inspire both dedicated and vicarious runners alike.
Dean Karnazes might just be the fittest man in the world, wrote Men's Fitness in 2006. An internationally recognised endurance athlete, Dean's first book, Ultramarathon Man, was a New York Times bestseller. Dean has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for charity through his running and sports career, and recently started his own foundation, Karno Kids.
