I received this email today and wanted to share it with you. Dean is a very good friend of ours and someone I really respect and admire! If you have not been following his 50 marathons you might want to check it all out.
Have a great day
Today I ran a 'simple' marathon. And feel of all the races I've run this one is worth sharing. For the single reason that the man I ran with, Dean Karnazes, ( http://www.runnersworld.com/topic/0,7122,s6-243-362-0-0,00.html) was such an inspiration. For those of you that are athletes. You will appreciate his mission. "Showing American that being fit and healthy is the single most important thing you can do for yourself, and your family." "Because without your health nothing else really matters." For those of you who are not athletes you can appreciate his message for just the same reasons.
Dean is running 50 marathons in 50 days in 50 states. Today we ran #22 in New Mexico. I encourage each of you to check his schedule http://endurance50.com/ and if there is anything you can do to run with the man do it. If you can't run, attend an event and meet him at the party he has after each run, before loading on the bus and heading to the next state. It will change your life and your understanding of what is possible.
