Dean Karnazeas - 50 is a Cruel Task-Master

Dean Karnazeas, a likely contender for Dean Karnazeas on just another daily runthe most fit runner in the world award (if there were such an award he'd be a contender), is focused on the number 50. He's under way to complete 50 marathons in 50 days in 50 states.

Today he finds himself in Fargo, North Dakota for day 10. After today it will be 260 miles down with another 1014 to go. I've known road trips with that kind of mileage and had nasea just thinking about driving that far.

One of Backcountry.com's employees Katie Gold will be running with Dean for one of his marathons and I'll be in St. George, Utah for the October 7 St. George marathon - one of 7 "live" marathons that Dean will be running.

Stay tuned for an update on Katie's experience running with Dean and my trip to see Dean run in St. George.

Follow along and watch Dean's progress at Endurance50.com and be sure to check out some of the gear from The North Face that Dean will be relying on (like the North Face Boa Endurus XCR Boa Trail Running Shoe) during this grueling undertaking.
