Dean, Go Karno's Kids! Go Girls on the Run! Anything final about where to meet in Chicago? Meet Jim Anderson at Expo? Hope to hear from you. Rock On! Michael Stain


Hey Dean,
I'm a South African marathon runner who has completed 3 Comrades marathons - ~89kms. Having recently read your book I realise I have only just scratched the surface of ultra endurance running! Keep up the great work and good luck for the last 18 marathons.


I am training for the Philadelphia Marathon and some of these long runs are lonely and boring - how do you do it every day?? I would love to join your group when you are in Philadelphia - is that possible?

Hi Dean,

My friends and I are following your very inspiring journey! Since the beginning of September, we've been having a great time meeting regularly for running here in Montreal. The distance and the frequency of our runs have been increasing. We are now talking about participating to marathons and triathlons.

Hope you'll feel better real soon. Best of luck.

I must say I am in much agreement about having people motivate you when you don't feel like taking one more step. That was me this morning as I headed out for a 15 miler before work at 4:30 AM. However, I felt a thousand times better post run.
Also, I wanted to send you news that I have the ball rolling on getting a Girls on the Run chapter started in Alabama. I am very excited along with other community members I have spoken to thus far.
I must say I have been receiving full inspiration to push my body further each day by reading your book. I know you hear this all the time, but I truly feel after I read like lacing up my shoes again for a 2nd or 3rd run for the day. Thank you for what you are doing for our country!

Sounds like the cold is getting rough. If you read this Dean, I would recommend mega-dosing vitamin C. A couple grams hour. However, ascorbic acid or even ester-C won't do much good. Here's two high quality vitamin-C's:
You probably already tried that one, but I thought I'd write it anyway.
You're the man.

Dean, you are surely THE MAN! I am so inspired by your remarkable running, upbeat attitude and love of humanity. My friend Keith Kirby sent me your book and I ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT and passed it on to a friend to enjoy and motivate. I think we can get too comfortable in life and thank you for pushing us to get out of the box and challenge ourselves. I've signed up for the Long Branch, NJ, marathon on Nov 4th, (49 of 50) and cannot wait! Keep strong and enjoy every moment! My motto . . . run like the wind! See you in New Jersey! Carole Donohue


At first I thought you were crazy: attempting the Endurance50. BUT after seeing how it is effecting many, many lives for the better, what could be wrong with that?
Keep up the GREAT work and hopefully I'll be able to cheer you on in Cleveland (race is full....)
(You've inspired me to run the Cleveland Marathon in May 2007, my first one!!) Thanks for all that you are doing!

You were amazing in Portland (Maine)! From the moment you bounded out of your vehicle, greeting everyone with infectious enthusiasm, you were an inspiration. To read that you were feeling so lousy that morning.....I'm even more impressed and inspired.
Keep up your great work for Karno Kids and your wonderful sense of adventure and tenacity.

I would like to thank you, even though this is belated. The marathon that I ran with you has been one of the greatest experiences of my life. It was so incredible to meet you and achieve one of my goals with the help of you and the others running. The cross-country team showed at regionals (in awful conditions), and having run the marathon didn't seem to slow me down much...I even beat two of the other top runners by quite a lot! I have recieved so many "congratulations," but I wish I could just tell everyone how great it really was! So, thank you again!!
