Ultramarathon Man

Tent 91 at the MdS became huge fans of Dean Karnazes
“Run if you can,” he wrote in his book about his ludicrous long-distance running achievements, “walk if you have to, crawl if you must. But never, ever stop.”
This advice served us well (though did little to help my metatarsal!). So I wrote him an email when I got home to say thanks for the inspiration. Well today I got a reply! How cool! If you enjoy running, or are thinking of signing up for a fun run then have a look at his book here.
And a great article here. He also carried the Olympic torch in San Francisco recently and wrote this intelligent article about the experience.
