Buchbeschreibung zu „Run!“

Running with Karnazes is like setting up one's easel next to Monet or Picasso.' - The New York Times
In his follow-up to the bestselling Ultramarathon Man, Dean Karnazes is back with more awe-inspiring tales of how he pushes his mind and body to limits which are inconceivable to most of us.
In Run! Dean shares the pleasure -- and considerable pain -- of some of his most memorable adventures, including:
* a gentle 350-mile canter through the surprisingly hilly Australian Outback
* his annual attempts at the Badwater Ultramarathon in Death Valley, California (typical temperature: 45 degrees)
* the notorious 4 Deserts races, a masochist's delight encompassing four separate 155-mile runs across the Atacama, the Gobi, the Sahara and Antarctica...with rationed water.
Dean's entertaining and endearing stories are sure to inspire and invigorate both dedicated and vicarious runners alike.
