Yasou Dean!

Your daily blogs are such an inspiration! Thank you for taking the time to write each day - I look forward to reading about your latest adventure and the wonderful people you are meeting along the way.

I am looking forward to seeing you in New York and remember, I am bringing the baklava.

Stay strong,

OK ... I'm hooked! All of the stories seem too good to be true, but I know they are true. I am going to be in Cleveland with my daughters to cheer you on! Inspiration like this is hard to find nowadays. But you are spreading it in every city you visit.
Keep Kicking Dean!


i love the positivity in this post. i can almost feel your runners' high! i'm so excited that you're almost halfway there. you can do it! go dean! :)


That was my son - The Canadian Air Force Officer - Scott! He has admired you through your book, which I have read, and to think he could meet and run with you was a thrill, even for his Mom. If I were near, I would have been ringing my cow bells! Be proud of what you do for others!

Hello Dean and his crew!

You guys have been inspiring me. I decided to run at the gym everyday, at least until you finish 27 more. Ever since I read your
UltraMarathonman book, what you said pops up in my mind while running. "the first half, run with legs. The last half, run with heeart" something like that. I always say it to myself. Anyway, you're my hero. Just wanted to let you know that there is an out-of-shape runner in Japan who has been inspired by you. Ganbatte!

Michael Myers

Hi Dean,
First of all, I would like to say best wishes in finishing your remaining marathons. Very impressive as is everything you set out to do.
Dean, my name is Michael Myers and I am on a self-contained, solo, bicycle trip from Anchorage, Alaska to the Baja, Mexico. I am in Central Idaho right now and always follow your running when I can find internet. I am raising money for Multiple Sclerosis during this ride, which my father has had for over 20 years, and it's going well. The reason for writing you is this: While I was in Northern British Columbia a month and a half ago, I met a 59 year old woman named "Rosie". Rosie is running around the world, pulling a 240 pound trailer behind her with no help or support. By far the most amazing person I have ever met, and just a wonderful woman. I thought I would share this with you and see if you have heard of this woman. Rosie is from Wales, UK and was been running since 2003, while starting from home in Wales she has already ran across europe and russia, while taking a short fight to the western most point in Alaska and I met her in BC. If interested her web site is www.rosiearoundtheworld.co.uk and my web site is www.mjmworldbike.blogspot.com, thanks Dean and again good luck on your E50.
Sincerely, Michael Myers from Boston, MA

Hi Dean!

What an inspiration you are!...I'm from Mexico and I'll be running my first marathon in Chicago in a couple of weekends, actually I look to meet you there in the windy city.
By reading on your daily runnings I have noticed that you and the other running folks "eat and drink" all along the way. My question is: What do you eat? Bars? Gels? Fruit?

The best for you from Mexico!! (and see you in Chicago...)
