The Endurance 50 begins

Today is a day off from running, since I went for a long one yesterday. And it is raining today, so that seems like a good enough of an excuse!

Given that I am being lazy and taking the day off, I wanted to point out that ultramarathoner Dean Karnazes has begun his quest of 50 marathons in 50 states in 50 days! Yesterday he kicked things off with the Lewis & Clark Marathon in St. Charles, MO. It sounded like the day got off to an interesting start in that Dean renewed his wedding vows with his wife in a surprise ceremony before the race!

For anyone interested, you will be able to follow Dean's progress at The North Face "Endurance 50" web site.

Until next time,

Jean
