50 Marathons in 50 Days -- The Perfect Human

This past weekend, a friend of mine told me about a man named Dean Karnazes, who just recently finished completing 50 marathons in 50 days. Unbelievable, inspirational, and absolutely insane -- all of the above. This has nothing to do with digital media, and all to do about simply being an incredible story of human endurance and will (and what the body is capable of). As an avid runner myself -- though I am pleased when I run 4 miles per day -- I can't even fathom Dean's accomplishment. But, it's all verified, and Dean has built up quite a cottage industry around himself. Read this article about him called "The Perfect Human" from a recent edition of Wired magazine.

A good inspirational story to start your work week. (Now, get to the gym!)
