Some background info on Dean...

Athlete and bestselling author of "Ultramarathon Man: Confessions of an all-night runner", Dean Karnazes, was recently ranked by a TIME magazine poll as one of the "Top 100 Most Influential People in the World." A passionate advocate for healthy, active living, his message has been so well received not because he runs hundreds of miles, but because he inspires others to be the best that they can be. One of his most recent endeavors was running 50 marathons, in all 50 states, in 50 consecutive days, finishing with the NYC Marathon, which he completed in three hours and thirty seconds. He has run a 135-mile ultramarathon across Death Valley in 120-degree temperatures and a marathon to the South Pole in negative 40 degrees. Dean has also run a 200-mile relay solo, completed a 350-mile run, won the Vermont 100-Mile Run, swam across the San Francisco Bay, climbed Half Dome in Yosemite, mountain-biked for 24 hours straight, surfed the gigantic waves off the coast of Hawaii, and is an accomplished windsurfer. His incredible adventures have been featured on 60 Minutes, The Today Show, CNN, The Late Show with David Letterman, The Howard Stern Show, Late Night with Conan O'Brien, and is a recipient of an ESPN ESPY award for best outdoor athlete in 2006.

Hey, that is old copy...his most recent endeavor is by far NOT the E50...although I would like some props as a NEO member for running the Cleveland day with him...that was my first marathon man!

I plan on attending this chat....should be good.

I guess "one of his most recent endeavors" would be a better phrase. Thanks Mikelopedia!
