About the author (2007)

'Running with Dean Karnazes [is] like setting up one's easel next to Monet or Picasso,' said The New York Times ...In 2004, Karnazes won the Badwater Ultramarathon in Death Valley - 'The World's Toughest Footrace' - running 135 miles in 120-degree Fahrenheit temperatures, in 27 hours, 22 minutes, and was named one of GQ 's 'Best Bodies of the Year.' In 2006 he completed the 'Endurance 50' event, running 50 marathons in 50 consecutive days in the 50 states of the US. The president of Good Health Natural Foods - and, according to Sports Illustrated Women, 'one of the sexiest men in sports' - Karnazes lives with his family in San Francisco.
