Dean Karnazes

Ultrarunner Dean Karnazes was in Cleveland for a book signing for his book Ultramarathon Man. Jeff and I were lucky to get a chance to talk with him and get his book signed. It was a pleasure to meet him. He takes a lot of flack by some ultra web sites and listservs, but he is a really down-to-earth guy. I think he asked us more questions than we could ask him!

If you have not had a chance to read this book, check it out. It isn't a book about running, it is a book about a runner. It is a great read and written very well.

Dean also talked about what he is doing this summer: 50 marathons in 50 states, in 50 days! Very impressive. He will be back in the Cleveland area this summer to run the Cleveland Marathon course. Maybe get a chance to catch up with him then!
