Run! by Dean Karnazes
Book DescriptionIn the follow-up to his bestselling Ultramarathon Man, world-renowned ultramarathoner Dean Karnazes chronicles his remarkable exploits and explorations in gripping detail. Who wouldn't be curious about a man who has pushed his body and mind to inconceivable limits, once running 350 continuous miles? Karnazes runs for days on end without rest, across some of the most exotic and inhospitable places on earth, including Antarctica, the Australian Outback and the back alleys of New Jersey. From the downright hilarious to the truly profound, the stories in Run! offer a rare glimpse into the mindset and motivation of an extreme athlete, one who has, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer, 'Not only pushed the envelope but blasted it to bits.' Karnazes addresses pain and perseverance, and he also charts the emotional terrain as he pushes to the edges of human achievement. Named by TIME Magazine as one of the 'Top 100 Most Influential People in the World', Karnazes has had, and continues to have, an impact on ordinary people's lives; these entertaining and endearing stories are sure to captivate and inspire readers whether they run great distances or not at all.
