The life of a long-distance runner is unique and full of passion for the sport. This story chronicles Dean Karnazes's rise to legendary status. He has been called " the fittest man in the world." James Yaegashi captures the struggles Karnazes faced as he trained relentlessly to improve his capabilities through all kinds of weather, over tough terrain, and over extreme long distances. The narrator's ability to introduce Karnazes's sense of humor into the performance provides the listener with insight into one of the personal traits that had to have helped him continue running when he was physically and mentally exhausted. Tips for up-and-coming long-distance runners are helpful, especially coming from such a pro. B.J.P. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 07]
