Run Across America


This morning on Regis and Kelly, Dean Karnazes started his journey running across America. Dean is known as the ultramarathon man. According to his website, He recently ran 50 marathons, in 50 different states, in 50 consecutive days. He has now set out to run across America (California to New York City) in 75 days. During Regis and Kelly's Run Across America with Dean Karnazes, he will be running around 50 miles per day. On Regis and Kelly, they said that he will have to eat 10,000 calories per day in order to maintain his current weight.

How crazy is that!?

While Dean will be challenging himself in a whole new way, he is also running across America in support of the Action for Healthy Kids organization. To read more, go here.

It's hard to think of an excuse to not exercise knowing that ol' Dean is trucking it across America.

...I think I'll go run now.
