- "I run because long after my footprints fade away, maybe I will have inspired a few to reject the easy path, hit the trails, put one foot in front of the other, and come to the same conclusion I did: I run because it always takes me where I want to go."
I have read both of Dean's books and I am a HUGE fan of his writing. Check out his website HERE, for fun click on the Dave Letterman clip to the right, it is pretty funny for a non-runner to interview this super-human ultra runner. I also own the 50 in 50 DVD and it is GREAT!!
This weekend I will run my 3rd Marathon... nothing compared to Dean but maybe I will run past the finish...27 miles perhaps, nothing big but to know that I CAN go beyond 26.2 is pretty cool!! An ultra is anything further than 26.2...Tall Mom may never run 100 miles, but steps beyond 26.2, that is doable. Thanks for the INSPIRATION Dean!!!
If you ever watch "How I Met Your Mother" then you know the term Doppelganger.... Well I am pretty sure that I will be running with Dean's Doppelganger... Uncanny...
