Runners from another dimension

By Steve Outing

I’m impressed that Brad Feld (Boulder-based venture capitalist and an investor in my company) has run six marathons in six states, and intends to have run 50 of them in 50 states by the time he turns 50 (December 1, 2015). I’ve got only one marathon completed and am proud of that; after all, it’s a pretty small segment of the population that’s completed 26.2 miles.

But get this: Ultrarunner Dean Karnazes will run 50 marathons in 50 states in 50 consecutive days starting in September! He’ll probably succeed. The guy’s already run 350 miles in 81 hours, run across Death Valley in the middle of summer, and done a bunch of other super-human stuff. What planet did he come from?
