Welcome to the Peak Endurance podcast! Episode 115 is an interview with Dean Karnazes. Dean is a two-time New York Times bestselling author and an icon in the running world. TIME magazine named Karnazes one of the '100 Most Influential People in the World.' An internationally acclaimed endurance athlete, he is the winner of an ESPN ESPY, a three-time winner of Competitor magazine's Endurance Sports Athlete of the Year award and the recipient of the President's Council on Sports Fitness & Nutrition Lifetime Achievement award. Dean has just put out his latest book ‘A Runner’s High. Older, Wiser, Slower, Stronger.’ The description of his book goes: “In A Runner's High, Karnazes chronicles his return to the Western States 100-Mile Endurance Run in his mid-fifties after first completing the race decades ago. The Western States, infamous for its rugged terrain and extreme temperatures, becomes the most demanding competition of his life, a physical and emotional reckoning and a battle to stay true to one's purpose. Confronting his age, wearying body, career path and life choices, we see Karnazes as we never have before, raw and exposed. A Runner's High is both an endorphin-fuelled page-turner and a love letter to the sport from one of its most celebrated ambassadors.” I have just read this book and I have to agree with this! It is a great read, to be honest I found it hard to put down!! I hope you enjoy our chat about his book and Dean’s running life in general!
