Interviewing Dean Karnazes

Today Kathy Cordova and I got to interview Dean Karnazes, world-famous ultra-marathon runner, on our TV show on TV30, Tri-Valley Community Television. Dean is such a nice guy, so down to earth and easy to talk to.
Thanks to Jerry Pentin for this photo.

Oh yes, the book. Men’s Fitness called him the Fittest Man on the Planet. He has run marathons and ultramarathons of 100 miles or more in some of the harshest conditions on earth—from Death Valley to the South Pole. He has been featured everywhere from David Letterman to 60 Minutes to The Howard Stern Show and we were pleased to have him on TV30 to talk about his new book, “50/50: Secrets I Learned Running 50 Marathons in 50 Days.”
