Karnazes Begins Run Across America
Ultramarathon man Dean Karnazes began his run across America today. The 48-year old departed this morning from Disneyland in California, and expects to arrive in New York City by May 11th.That works out to about 50 miles a day on average to complete the 3000 mile trek. Karnazes ran 50 marathons (26.2 miles) in 50 states in 50 days five years ago, so logistically, this should be easier. All he has to worry about is running every day! Karnazes hopes to promote fitness to all ages with this latest endeavor.
Regis & Kelly will be carrying live updates on his progress every morning on their tv show, and you can follow him here: http://www.dadt.com/live/special/runacrossamerica/index.html
