Great book to run to.
This book kept me motivated. 50/50 inspired me to keep running. Dean did a great job of explaining what he went through and also talking about all the other runners. It's not just about his accomplishment of doing 50 marathons in 50 days, which is amazing...but this book is about his support crew, the runners that flew from other countries, states, and cities just to run with him, and also what his family went through.
50/50 is more on my level than Ultra Marathon Man. At least I can say that I am able to do a 1/2 marathon now. :)
