So I try to keep this blog about technology and academics, keep it focused to provide the maximum amount of usefulness to others. I try to save my random thoughts and rants for elsewhere. But I have been following Dean Karnazes for the past 28 days, and he is worthy of a post. You see Dean is running 50 marathons, in 50 days. Yes that is 1310 miles. He is running one in each state and is using this endurance test to raise money for good causes. I can conceive of a marathon, I have run a few, heck I can even conceive of running two or three (I haven’t but I know some who have), but 50 . . .Anyway check out his blog, and also check out the site of one of his trainers for a perspective on what this physically requires.
