Publisher's Summary

In his follow-up to the best-selling Ultra-Marathon Man, world-renowned ultra marathoner Dean Karnazes chronicles his unbelievable exploits and explorations in gripping detail; Karnazes runs for days on end without rest, across some of the most exotic and inhospitable places on earth, including the Australian Outback, Antarctica, and the back alleys of New Jersey.
From the downright hilarious to the truly profound, the stories in Run! provide listeners with the ultimate escape and offer a rare glimpse into the mindset and motivation of an extreme athlete, one who has, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer, "Not only pushed the envelope but blasted it to bits."
Karnazes addresses pain and perseverance, and he also charts the emotional as he pushes to the edges of human achievement. The tales of the friendships he’s cultivated on his many adventures around the world warm the heart, and are sure to captivate and inspire readers whether they run great distances, modest distances, or not at all.

Great stories. Horrible narrator.

Inspiring stories of endurance and perseverance. The narrator was very robotic and difficult to listen to at times. Listening required a level of my own endurance.

Dean Seems to Have Run Out of Stories

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

You would need to be a pretty big fan of Dean's to enjoy this one. I'm not a fan, nor am I a hater, I just think he keeps putting out books even when he's already said it all. TWO detailed stories of being in a convenience store? Really?
It should be mentioned that I'm an ultra-runner, which is why I chose this, and I was still pretty darn bored.

What could Dean Karnazes have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Tried to keep in mind that just because it happened to HIM, that still doesn't always equal an interesting story.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Well narrated, and I'm pretty picky about narration, so that's high praise.

Any additional comments?

I did enjoy the Badwater chapter, so it's not all negative :)
