Running with Dean Karnazes

I just registered for this!
He is coming to Riverside, CA this Saturday.  I already have a 10k race on Sunday and my Saturday was already busy with our last game and the team party that will follow it and it was supposed to be a REST day plus we are supposed to get rain all weekend here but I don't care.  There are only 12 Run with Dean 5k runs during his mega run across the USA.  This one is only 30 minutes away from me.  This is a great opportunity.  It is like getting a chance to play hockey with this guy:

So I am going! I hope I get to meet him! That would be wonderful!
If you don't already have his book : "50/50: Secrets I Learned Running 50 Marathons in 50 Days- and How You Too Can Achieve Super Endurance!" is on sale at Barnes and Nobles for $5.38 right now.

Very very cool! I met him at a race expo (Chicago Marathon I think). He's smaller than I thought and very very ripped...but don't tell him I said that. ; )

Kovas said...

Woohoo, Dean is the man! I'm thinking of driving down so my kids can see him, but it's not that close to Chicago, so we'll see.

Proudly raise your banners high
