Dean Karnazes - Life in Motion

We are excited to announce that Ultramararthon runner Dean Karnazes will be our guest athlete/speaker this year! Dean has been dubbed "The Ultramarathon Man" and is ranked among TIME magazine's 100 most influential people in the world. His feat of running 50 marathons in 50 states in 50 days can only be described as "superhuman." Dean's message to us all is "get of the couch, get healthy, hit the trails, and go the extra mile." With that mantra in mind, and with physiology adapted for endless running, he has run 350 miles nonstop, and completed ultramarathons across the world's five greatest deserts: the Atacama, Gobi, Death Valley, Sahara, and Antarctic. This year 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.
