This is crazy/wild/amazing. How does he do it? Does this prove that the whole "recovery time" thing is a myth??

man! i can't imagine that his body is gonna feel very good after the 5th or 6th day of that type of running! wow!

There are people in New York right now running around a block like 40 miles a day every day for almost 2 months. It's 3,100 miles!
Monday, July 31, 2006, 12:45 PM
40 miles a day!!!
Monday, July 31, 2006, 6:16 PM
oh my god, and here i was thinking my running apx 20 miles a week was good. i got to get my butt in gear.
Monday, July 31, 2006, 9:33 PM
Wow.. and I thought walking 60 miles in 3 days was tough. I can't imagine running 50 miles a day for 50 days... He must be mostly lean muscle mass and no body fat!!! :-)

Is his name Forrest Gump?!
It's one of those things that's neat, I guess, but it's really just a bit ridiculous. It's so over-the-top.
To the 9:33pm poster, you don't have to step up anything! You're doing great!

Yes, he's starting in MO at the Lewis and Clark Marathon. I'm doing the 1/2 Marathon so it should be interesting to see what they do.

The 50 marathons in 50 days guy starts today...............
Sunday, September 17, 2006, 11:52 AM
I'm picturing Tom Hanks as Forrest Gump
Sunday, September 17, 2006, 2:32 PM
I'm running with him when he runs through my town! Check out this book...Ultramarathon Man...It's really inspirational.
Monday, September 18, 2006, 12:53 PM
where is he now?
Tuesday, September 19, 2006, 10:09 AM
Today, Tuesday, September 19, 2006 he was in Waveland, Mississippi and tomorrow, he is in Little Rock, Arkansas. He is pretty fast also, he is doing 3:40 marathons.
Tuesday, September 19, 2006, 3:40 PM
3:40 marathons....what does that mean?
Tuesday, September 19, 2006, 3:42 PM
26 miles in 3 hours and 40 minutes! Thats pretty fast.
Tuesday, September 19, 2006, 3:53 PM
that is out of control!!! i might be able to do 26 miles in 3.4 days, but hours....totally amazing! they oughtta call THIS the amazing race!
Tuesday, September 19, 2006, 3:57 PM
26 miles in 3 hours and 40 minutes means he does approximatly a 8:30 minute mile, yes, that's fast..............

Dean Karnazes, the guy doing 50 marathons in 50 days in all 50 states is about 1/4 of the way complete, and has ran about 340 miles now. He is averaging 3:45-4:00 hour marathons. It is just amazing.
You can run with him tomorrow, Sunday, October 1, at the Portland OR Marathon, if you'd like......

He must be rich! He doesn't have to work? Just Run. Easier then the daily day to day grind
Saturday, September 30, 2006, 1:44 PM
lots of sponsors
sponsors, check out his website, he's rich now because he has lots of sponsors.
Saturday, September 30, 2006, 5:53 PM
This is pretty cool.
Tuesday, October 10, 2006, 3:45 PM
I heard about this. Did he finish?
Tuesday, October 10, 2006, 4:16 PM
He is not done yet. I was in the Portland Marathon on the 1st, but never did capture a glimpse at him. He's extremely conditioned, so while most folks would need recovery days, he is able to keep plugging along. I'm sure he's tired and especially as he goes into the last 1/4 of this marathon tour, I'm sure his muscles will be screaming, but his pace of about 3.5 to 4 hrs per marathon, is somewhat leisurely for him. No doubt he could go faster if he pushed himself, but he knows he needs to pace himself to keep up this schedule. and yes, the sponsor money keeps him well funded while he's taking a leave from his job to do this.

I subscribed to his newsletter, and this is part of the email they sent out about his finish:
On November 10, 2006, world-recognized ultramarathoner and best-selling author, Dean Karnazes, accomplished his quest to run 50 marathons in 50 states in 50 consecutive days.
The North Face Endurance 50, a celebration of endurance and the athletes who push preconceived notions of what is possible, commenced on September 17 at the Lewis and Clark Marathon in St. Charles, Missouri, and finished Sunday, November 5 at the New York City Marathon. Throughout the 50 days, thousands of runners from across the country and around the globe took part in the historic event in which The North Face and Karnazes challenged Americans to achieve their personal best, whether running just a few miles, a half marathon, their first full marathon, or their 20th.
Also, a link to his website:
Tuesday, November 14, 2006, 7:32 PM
that subject was supposed to read "He finished". Don't know what happened there.
Tuesday, November 14, 2006, 7:34 PM
I was really pissed at the television coverage of the New York marathon last week -- 90% of the press coverage went to Lance Armstrong. Yes, he's a world-class athlete and crowd-pleaser...but Dean didn't get a single mention in the two hours I was watching. He deserved at least as much attention as the Arkansas governor who lost 110 lbs and erased diabetes from his life. Hmph.
