Hey Dean! It has been such an exciting day and even though I've gotten exactly 4 hrs sleep in the last 37 hours (I went to work after the marathon and it's 3rd shift), every minute of it has been worth it! I was so amazed by the whole experience of not only running with you (until you started going so fast) but especially getting to meet and talk with you after the race! I hope my boyfriend was not jealous when I kept talking about how amazing you are but I just know this will be one of THE most unforgettable days in my life! Thank you again for inspiring me to run this 50-Mile in Chicago this Nov 11, and to actually meet you and HEAR your words of encouragement was even greater!

Mr.Karnazes, I have never logged onto one website for forty consecutive days...that is until now....needless to say! My sentiments are that of the other million people writting in daily. Totally in awe. Your book has truely been my best read ever, and have bought extra copies to make very well recieved birthday presents. Could you ever let me know just how many pairs of runners you use yearly (though weekly might be easier to calculate!) Have you ever conidered selling your used runners to raise even more money for Karno Kids, I'm tipping they'll be worth a heck of a lot more with their well worn soles by your good self. As I'm in Australia I can only hope you'll be here to run one day. Whats life without hope eh? So envious of all you wonderful folk who've run alongside Dean. I'm telling anyone who will listen about Dean Karnazes, anyone who knows me, knows of Dean. Looking forward to my first big M in Canberra this April, and you will be surely in my thoughts. Warmest Regards Cathy. One quarter left....stay stong....the very best

It was such an exciting day just to be out there at Otter Creek and running the marathon! What a course; I'd never run a trail marathon before so it was challenging definitely! Yet as I was running, I was thinking of the 50-Mile I will run Nov 11 in Chicago and how that will be 24 more miles! Then after the race, when I spoke with you, I heard your words of encouragement and I felt so ready to run it! You're amazing, having run 40 of these races in a row, because no matter how hard I've trained for this 50-Mile, 26.2 is still a long distance! It was truly amazing to get to talk to you and have you sign all my stuff! I put my signed clothing and new Endurance 50 watch on right away before I even drove from the park! I know I seemed to have so much energy when running and after when we met, but when I drove home it was difficult to keep my eyes open on the road! After being up for 24 hrs, I slept 4 hrs then went to work for a nice 6-hr 3rd shift! I was definitely exhausted when I got home, but today was a day in my life that I will definitely never forget! I was talking about the marathon the whole time I was at work! Have fun in Florida! And enjoy those warm temps!

Hello Dean,

Trail-running always concerns me, after a few of my running colleagues were side-lined because of it. This is the third leg on a trail for E50. It is interesting that it hardly registers a blimp on your concern meter--other than getting lost.

Your blog has introduced me to the running world online. Mostly good stuff. Competitiveness blinds others, making you more and more special in the way you care about the rest of us.

Your blog has also chronicled people touched by your commitment, each individual carrying their own personal pain and what they have done to get to just the day after. I don't know how you can handle the world's pain unless you are working on your self as well. Your connection with the kids are the best stories ever.

The countdown has commenced. After today, there is nine. I'll see you in the Liberty City. Meanwhile, carry the torch and brighten our lives for a while.

Take care of yourself, Dean.

Hi Dean. Fantastic trail run at Otter Creek Park in Kentucky. The mud,sweat and blood(seven stitches in the knee) were well worth it just to be a part of this epic event. Good Luck in the rest of the marathons. Tony...
