Go The Extra Mile: Life on the Run
A talk with Dean Karnazes, Ultramarathoner 

Rock/Creek 2 North Shore, Chattanooga, TN
October 3, 2009


‘Superhuman’ is the only word to describe Dean Karnazes’ feat of running 50 marathons in 50 states in 50 days. Dubbed "The Ultramarathon Man," and ranked among the 100 Time Magazine’s most influential people, Dean’s message to all is, "Get off the couch, get healthy, go the extra mile." With that mantra, and with a physiology adapted for endless running, he’s run 350 miles – nonstop – and most recently completed an ultramarathon across the world’s four great deserts, the Atacama, Sahara, Gobi and Antarctic.
