Dean,

I started running before I knew about you--so I can't say you got me into running. But after reading your book, you've made me really appreciate running. I use to think of it as a chore and something I HAD to do. But the other day, it was rainy and I decided to go out for a run anyway. I thought about how I decided to run for MYSELF and enjoying it is much more fun than just getting it over with. Out there I saw something touching, was there was this dad and boy on a bike who got stuck in the rain and the kid was grasping on to the dad and laughing hysterically as the raindrops were pelting his face. It was a moment that made me glad I was out there running that day. Thanks for putting a smile on my face during in my runs! You're truely an inspiration!

Dean,

I was a high school runner, and rested my first 2 years of college. I decided to get back into shape, read your book, and you are truly inspiring. I'm running my first marathon in Chicago in 76 hours, and I'm super excited to be in the same event with you. Everyone I talk to about your endurance 50 says "whatever, he's going to kill himself," but I never doubted you. I know you can do it, and you continually inspire me on days when I'm not feeling up to running. 18 more to go! You're amazing, and I really hope to see you on Sunday in Chicago.

Sincerely,

Don Yamtich

Dean, thank you for making such a great impression on a group of fantastic fifth graders from the Bridgewater-Hebron Village School. They were proud to represent our little school at mile 4, as many other students were completing regional testing. Smiling, engaging, receiving their water and candy, slapping hands, it all adds up! Your efforts to raise awareness are very much appreciated!

Dean,
You continue to be an inspiration to me as I prepare for my first full Marathon in Houston on January 14, 2007. I ran 20 miles with you in Baton Rouge, LA and have been totally moved by the experience. Since running with you, I have read a little over half of you book and have tracked your progress on this web-site. I enjoy reading your daily blogs and viewing the pictures. Keep running man! Pary is smiling on you!

I hope you decide to be speaker at the Cowtown Marathon.....

but you should also consider being guest speaker for the JFK (John F. Kennedy) 50 mile run on Friday November 18.

JFK50 is the oldest 50-mile ultra in the country--also the longest in continuence. It has records for the largest number of ultra finishers and also the largest percentage of finishers. It is not uncommon for over 95% of starters to complete this event.

With that said, you should really consider being our speaker this year, the group is like a family because everyone keeps coming back for more.

If you are doing 50/50/50...consider that being the speaker at the oldest 50miler would be a great honor--and we would love to have you!

Cheers.

Keep it up Dean.....We're waiting in NYC for the finale!!! Your pace is incredible; faster than you originally projected. Hopefully I'll be able to join you for a couple of miles along the route with 37,000 other runners and millions cheering

Dean,

Congratulations on your amazing marathon journey! I might join you in the Long Branch Marathon. Whenever I'm need of a little inspiration your book always does the trick. Long may you run!

Sincerely,

Dean,

You are such an inspiration to all athletes and non-athletes alike. Wow. I really enjoyed reading your post about NH. I grew up going to camp around Newfound Lake and have experienced the beauty there first hand on my runs up and down those hilly roads around "America's 2nd cleanest lake" as they say. Keep up the running Dean and stay hydrated!

God bless
