Life in Motion
“Superhuman” is the only word to describe Dean Karnazes’s feat of running 50 marathons in 50 states in 50 days.
Dubbed “The Ultramarathon Man,” and ranked among TIME Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in the World, Dean’s message to all is, “Get off the couch, get healthy, hit the trails and go the extra mile.” With that mantra, and with a physiology adapted for endless running, he’s run 350 miles nonstop, and he’s completed an ultramarathon across the world’s five great deserts: the Atacama, Gobi, Death Valley, Sahara and Antarctic.
In 2011, Dean brought fitness home to millions with his 3000-mile, 75-day, coast-to-coast Run Across America, televised on Live! with Regis and Kelly.View Athlete Profile
