Dean Karnazes – New Movie and Book

Ultra-runner and fitness promoter Dean Karnazes completed that crazy adventure of 50 marathons in 50 days back in 2006 while trying to inspire others to get off the couch and move the body. Most probably thought he was a nut (aren’t all endurance athletes) but I bet there are a good number exercising today thanks to Dean.

During Dean’s jog across the country, Journeyfilm followed his every step with camera(s) in hand. With all this footage, an inspirational film was created called 50 Marathons. The film was recently in theaters for only one night. Unfortunately I was not able to watch it but the trailer looks pretty interesting. Check it out! I assume the film will eventually be available for purchase.

Those that had watched the film, what did you think of it?

While stretching and completing his ice baths Dean found a bit of time to write a book on this journey as well, called 50/50: Secrets I Learned Running 50 Marathons in 50 Days. It has just recently become available but based on the description, it looks like it will contain plenty of insights and tips and how he was able to keep things rollin’ across this seeming impossible challenge. Even though most of us won’t be coming close to running 50 marathons in 50 days, there will still probably be some beneficial nuggets to help us in our endurance adventures. I am sure there will be some interesting stories as well.

Has anyone read the book yet, thoughts?

Competitor Radio also did an interview with Dean prior to the release of the film. Listen to the man himself here. You can definitely sense the enjoyment in what he does. Good for him!
