Dean Karnazes- Dirt Church Radio #007


Kia Ora Whanau. We are super excited this week to talk to our first international guest and a man who is a giant in our culture, Mr Dean Karnazes. Over a 25 year career Dean has run more ultramarathons that one can count, set various endurance records, gained 11 one day buckles at Western States Endurance Run and has been a previous Badwater winner. Dean is a best-selling author, having written four books detailing his life and adventures whilst running, including his epic 50/50 - which detailed Dean running 50 Marathons in 50 states of the USA in 50 days and The Road To Sparta, which details his odyssey leading up to and including the Spartathlon in Greece. Perhaps what Dean is best known for is his unrelenting positivity, advocacy, and love of running, activity and inspiring others to move and challenge what they thought possible. We spoke to Dean via Skype from his home in Marin County California about his journey to this point and where he sees the future heading, his ongoing and evolving love of running and humanity. Engaging, candid, and generous, we were absolutely blown away by the chance to talk to someone who has engaged so many for so long. Thank you, Dean! Enjoy!!
