So what does a guy like this do when he wants to face the ultimate test of endurance? He runs 50 marathons in 50 states-in 50 consecutive days. With little more than a road map and a caravan packed with fellow runners and a dedicated crew, Dean set off on a tour that took him through a volcanic canyon in Maui in high humidity and 88-degree heat; to an elevation gain of almost 4,000 feet at the Tecumseh Trail Marathon in Bloomington, Indiana; to a severed moose leg found alongside an Anchorage, Alaska, trail that compelled him to sprint for safety.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A real page-turner…Karnazes not only takes us along his incredible journey but gives us an in-depth look at the toll…which pushing himself to the very limit took.” Daytona Beach News-Journal
“Since I’m poleaxed by one marathon in one state in one year, I was eager to learn his secrets. Rest well and race in cold weather, he tells us, and then goes without sleep before the Desert Classic Marathon in Phoenix, which is run at 103 degrees. Cross-train, he says, and then runs 26.2 miles every day. Clearly the secret to running like Dean Karnazes is to be Dean Karnazes. Which for all but one of us is out of the question. At least we get to hear his voice. Which is so friendly and so enthusiastic that I forgave him immediately.” AudioFile
