    On May 6 I ran a 5K race at The North Face Endurance Challenge in Bear Mountain, NY. The event had races of various distances, some up to 50 MILES!
    Running 50 miles in one day sounds pretty extreme, impossible and crazy to me but once you hear about what Dean Karnazes- The Ultra Marathon Man has done it will sound like a walk in the park. I first heard about Dean while reading Outside Magazine a few years back.

    Dean is an ultra marathon runner and has also written two books. A ultra marathon is a running race longer than a traditional marathon which is 26.2 miles. Dean has ran many races over 100 miles, one as far as 350 miles without stopping. He recently ran across the United States- 3,000 miles in 75 days. Another amazing feat was running 50 marathons in 50 states on 50 consecutive days.
