Description

Casual runners will find inspiration in Karnazes's determination; nonathletes will have the evidence once and for all .

Casual runners will find inspiration in Karnazes's determination; nonathletes will have the evidence once and for all that runners are indeed a strange breed. Being a running enthusiast myself and having followed Dean Karnazes inspiring story of a total life change is a compelling and very interesting read! I love the journey that Dean has gone on as a human being and his story is certainly highlighted in the right way, self deprecating, self satisfying, self affirming, I really enjoyed the read and think Dean is a great inspiration to many.

Ultrarunning legend Dean Karnazes has run 262 miles-the equivalent of ten marathons-without rest. He has run over mountains, across Death Valley, and to the South Pole-and is probably the first person to eat an entire pizza while running. With an insight, candor, and humor rarely seen in sports memoirs (and written without the aid of a ghostwriter or cowriter), Ultramarathon Man has inspired tens of thousands of people-nonrunners and runners alike-to push themselves beyond their comfort zones and be reminded of "what it feels like to be truly alive," says Sam Fussell, author of Muscle. Ultramarathon Man answers the questions Karnazes is continually asked: - Why do you do it?- How do you do it?- Are you insane? And in the new paperback edition, Karnazes answers the two questions he was most asked on his book tour: - What, exactly, do you eat?- How do you train to stay in such good shape?

Being a running enthusiast myself and having followed Dean Karnazes inspiring story of a total life change is a compelling and very interesting read! I love the journey that Dean has gone on as a human being and his story is certainly highlighted in the right way, self deprecating, self satisfying, self affirming, I really enjoyed the read and think Dean is a great inspiration to many. This book made me want to run again. I'm not an excellent runner in any way, shape or form, nor will I ever be. I will never have the endurance Dean has and has demonstrated; however, that's not what running is all about. If you get out and run, you ARE a runner and I love how Dean encourages his fans and simply the public in general about it all. Thanks for writing this Dean, it was a great read!

I hate running. Or at least I used to. And it had been a long time since I've run more than a few steps.
The most I have ever run in my life was 3 miles. And that was when I participated in a 3k race.

After reading a 1/3 of the book, around 11pm, I just went out and ran 4 miles.
Two days later, after reading another 1/3 of the book, I went outside and ran 6 miles.
Two days later, after finished the book, I went outside, and like Forest Gump, I ran 12 miles.

At times, I had to walk, and there were a few times when I felt like I was crawling.

The quote from the book, "When you can't run, walk. When you can't walk, crawl" continued to echo in my mind.

The narration is very engaging and I enjoyed reading it.

After this book, I read Born to Run by Chris McDougall. And while I did enjoy that book as well, Chris does take a few shots at Dean Karnazes. And so does Scott Jurek. There seems to be some resentment within the ultra community re: the amount of publicity and recognition that Dean has been receiving. I'm not aware of all that but all I know is that this book in itself, has inspired me to run again and that's all that matters.

Dean has a playful and compact writing style that gives the reader a mostly uncensored look as to what goes on in the mind of an Ultramarathon runner. This book is as much about chasing your passion, about discovering yourself and finding what really matters in your life as it is about how to survive 200 miles of running.

Has it made me more interested in running Ultras? Not really, but it makes me appreciate those that do. They are a unique breed of runner with a unique running community. It makes me realize that the sacrifices I make for my own running endeavors are worth the effort because it gets me closer to becoming a better me.

I read the first 200 pages in one sitting on a plane. Then my connecting flight got delayed, delayed, delayed, canceled. It was 2 AM in Atlanta, my new flight boarded at 6:30.

No time for real sleep. What was I going to do?

I grabbed my gear out of my bag and put in a dozen miles running the airport, afterward cleaning myself up like a hobo in the family bathroom, using hand soap and paper towels.

Now it's 11 AM, I finished the book, I slept for 30 minutes or so a few hours ago and I feel like a badass.

Thanks, Dean, for the inspiration.

I heard Dean Karnazes speak on the Spartan Cruise and was thoroughly entertained, and ordered the book as soon as we had internet service again. The book reads just like he speaks. This was an entertaining book. I didn't expect it to be a guide to running, or a historical book - the title is as tongue in cheek, and so is the book. It's an auto-biography, so it's a mix of being intentionally self-effacing while also claiming his victories.

Do not read this book to learn how to run, to learn how to run further, or to learn about the history of ultramarathons. Read it because it's fun, and because, even if you're a crazy guy going through your own mid-life crisis through athletic endeavours, he'll probably make you feel relatively normal. (Take it from me).

It's a light read - 269 pages in the paperback - and I read it faster than I ran my first marathon (and, not coincidentally, on the same day....)

I like this book! I really do. It's quite inspiring in fact. I read the 1-star reviews before writing this review and I must say, some are true to a certain extent. This book is not for everyone, so don't expect that you will benefit after reading this book. The content is basically a journey to his endeavors as a runner. He started running in high school, stopped for a number of years, and then started running again which all began at a midnight. Then that was when his, "running career" all blossomed.

Overall, it's a good read. Don't expect any training, eating or workout plans but then, I didn't have any expectations so again, it's a good read. I'm starting to read his 50/50 in which Dean conquered 50 marathons in 50 states within 50 days.

I read Dean's books backwards starting with his latest 26.2, and then picked up Ultra Marathon Man. Dean has become a media sensation in recent years. I first read about him in Runner's World a few years ago when he decided to run 1 marathon in each state over a 7 week period and thought- how can anyone run that much??? Recently I heard he was running from California to NYC, clocking 50+ miles per day along the way. I was intrigued by this incredible determination and will for adventure and started reading his books... Ultra Marathon Man is a GREAT read. Although I'm a runner, I can not even fathom the distances and races that Dean puts his body and mind through on a daily basis. But it sure is fun to read about his journey from corporate executive to becoming the 'Ultra Marathon Man'. This book details his early running life in high school, the major running gap after encountering a negative track coach, the path he took on his 30th birthday to return to his passion for running, and ultimately his first endurance events. Dean talks of running with his feet, his head, and his heart and the story is a compelling one that will be enjoyable and inspiring whether the reader is a runner or not.
Great book. Motivational. Can't read it without starting a running program.
