Man on a Mission- Dean Karnazes

I always enjoy following Dean Karnazes' latest adventures in running. Currently he is on a mission. He is actually running from California Mission to Mission in his latest quest to test his endurance. It all started on May 18th when he took off from Sonoma, California on a 700 mile run that takes him through 21 of the state's historical Missions on a target to finish in San Diego on June 1st for the San Diego Rock 'n' Roll Marathon. He is actually recreating a very historic pilgrimage. The daily accounts are worth your time to read. You can find them in the Runner's World blogs.

Dean (or a family member) gives you an up close and realistic look at just what happens on a daily basis when you run that many miles. He has incredible crew support and many friends along the way that meet up with him and then run with him. It's a dream of mine to someday share the road with such a remarkable runner.

But I have to say this, I have been very lucky to share the road with many of you out there that read my posts. I look forward to many more miles with you! You too, are all remarkable runners!

Forward we go! May your roads and trails be happy and safe!
