Podcast Episode # 27 - Going Beyond Limitations

Episode # 27 of Xtraordinary Living is out. The topic is Going Beyond Limitations. In this episode I interview Ultramarathon Man Dean Karnazes. Dean is an amazing example of someone living an extraordinary Life. Men’s Fitness Magazine proclaimed, Dean “The fittest man in the world.”

As an internationally recognized endurance athlete, speaker and best-selling author, Dean has pushed his body and mind to inconceivable limits. Among his many accomplishments: he has run 350 continuous miles, foregoing sleep for three nights; run across Death Valley in 120 degree temperatures: and run a marathon to the South Pole in negative 40 degrees. His most recent endeavor was running 50 marathons, in all 50 US states, in 50 consecutive days -- finishing with the NYC Marathon, which he ran in three hours flat.

In our 27th episode, you’ll learn:
-- What it means to be an ‘Ultra’ Marathoner.
-- When and why Dean decided to start to run.
-- Why our obsession with comfort can lessen our enjoyment of living.
-- Why it’s important to set lofty goals, yet take ‘baby steps’ to achieve them.
-- Tips on how you can order food ‘to go’ while you’re running a marathon.
-- The importance of scripting out your perfect life.
-- What impact his passion for running has had on his family.
-- How is 50-50-50 marathon achievement is adding scientific information on how his body handles going beyond the normal.
-- And much more!
