This week’s conversation is with Dean Karnazes, an acclaimed endurance athlete and NY Times bestselling author, who has pushed his body and mind to inconceivable limits.
TIME magazine named him one of the “Top 100 Most Influential People in the World.” Men’s Fitness hailed him as one of the fittest men on the planet. Stan Lee, of Marvel Comics fame, called him, “A real superhuman.”
Among his many accomplishments, he has run 50 marathons, in all 50 US states, in 50 consecutive days and he’s run 350 continuous miles, foregoing sleep for three nights.
He’s run across the Sahara Desert in 120-degree temperatures, and he’s run a marathon to the South Pole in negative 40 degrees.
On ten separate occasions he’s run a 200-mile relay race solo, racing alongside teams of twelve.
He has raced and competed on all seven continents of the planet, twice over.
So you might be thinking, how I could possibly relate to Dean? And that’s what makes this conversation beautiful.
This isn’t about the how but about the why…
We discuss motivation, purpose, meaning, overcoming hardship, and so much more...
