UltraMarathon Man

Who's that? That mid-week eye candy would be Dean Karnazes, who ran 50 marathons in 50 states in 50 days! We've all seen his books, interviews and articles...and now he has a movie about the experience. I just got my tickets for the July 31st world premiere showing. You can find a theater showing this flick near you HERE.
His blog is also very cool, which you can get to through the above link. Here are some of his stats :

Number of shoes: 5 pair
Number of socks: 18 pair
Number of lost toenails: 3
Number of blisters: 2
Number of calories per day: 5,000 to 6,000
Number of trail marathons: 5
Hottest temperature: 104 degrees, Arizona
Coldest temperature: 38 degrees, Alaska
Faster time: 3:00:30 - NYC Marathon, #50
Slowest time: 4:45:21 - Tecumseh Trail Marathon, #39
Longest drive: 11 ½ hours
Shortest drive: 55 minutes
Average hours of sleep: 4 ½
Starting weight: 154
Finish weight: 153

Only 2 blisters? That's pretty impressive.

Anyway, I'm excited about the movie...Running films pump me up!!
