Présentation de l'éditeur

Heart-pounding adventure stories from a world-renowned superathlete who charts the frontiers of human endurance.

'Running with Karnazes is like setting up one's easel next to Monet or Picasso.' - The New York Times

In his follow-up to the bestselling Ultramarathon Man, Dean Karnazes is back with more awe-inspiring tales of how he pushes his mind and body to limits which are inconceivable to most of us.

In Run! Dean shares the pleasure -- and considerable pain -- of some of his most memorable adventures, including:

* a gentle 350-mile canter through the surprisingly hilly Australian Outback

* his annual attempts at the Badwater Ultramarathon in Death Valley, California (typical temperature: 45 degrees)

* the notorious 4 Deserts races, a masochist's delight encompassing four separate 155-mile runs across the Atacama, the Gobi, the Sahara and Antarctica...with rationed water.

Dean's entertaining and endearing stories are sure to inspire and invigorate both dedicated and vicarious runners alike.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Dean, Where Did You Go!? 1 avril 2011
Par PapaBear615 - Publié sur Amazon.com

"Ultramarathonman" hooked me on Dean. While clearly he is not the world's elite ultrarunner, the book motivated people, inspired them to get fit, to challenge their belief in their own capabilities. He wrote in a style that was refreshing, bold, and passionate. "50/50" was a far cry from his first effort, and when I first heard about "Run!" I was hoping for a rebound from what I would refer to as his sophomore slump. I need to premise this by again acknowledging the positives that Dean brought into my life as an individual, but I must give an honest review.

Dean, what happened? Early on in "Run!" the thought began creeping in my mind that you've started taking yourself far too seriously, and that all of the steps you take in your runs are after nothing but the mighty dollar. This book, at best, is a series of short stories better suited for a free blog as opposed to qualifying it as a full book. Some of the stories are entertaining, but many, and I mean many of them are self-righteous and plain boring. The further I read, the more my letdown turned to anger--Dean, you've lost your way, man! While I'm certain you'll have a fourth effort looming before too long, I encourage you to return to your roots--become an inspirational story teller and avoid trying to make yourself a writer. "Ultramarathonman" worked, "50/50" was just that, and "Run!" simply misses the mark.

I'm willing to give you another shot, Dean, but don't do it for the money, because I'm onto you!

Par supercleary - Publié sur Amazon.com

Perhaps I had higher hopes for this book. Perhaps I was expecting something else, but frankly, I did not like this book.

First off, I was expecting what was pitched "26.2 short stories about running." What I got though was 26 snippets - with a few fuller "stories" included - in there about how Dean Karnazes is A) the greatest ultra runner ever, B) how Dean Karnazes thinks he's the greatest adventurer of all time C) and finally about how many other people think Dean Karnazes is great.

Now don't get me wrong, he's quite a guy and most people will never come near his level of superior running, but the 272 of self congratulatory stories, page after page, made me cringe countless times.

One of my favorite traits of this book is his ability to write about how he is "humble," doesn't like the spot light, and doesn't think he's great. But then conveniently, the next line is always some friend, family member, or fan praising his amazing accomplishments.

An additional issue I find in the book is his constant use of "us runners" or "we runners" or "only fellow runners understand" as a gimmick to tie the author closer to the reader. Let's face it, "runners" and what Karno does should not be confused. The weekend warriors that are getting winded doing a 5k don't understand what he goes through, and vice-versa. It's been a long time since he and his "fellow runners" were even on the same planet. He runs at such an extreme - and impressively so - that he shouldn't belittle his achievements by pretending I have any idea what sort of training and focus he has.

What frustrates me most about this book though is at its core, there was a great story to be told. This man has done amazing feats of endurance and running and I want to hear about it. I want to know every detail about his trails and his triumphs. I want the whole picture, and I want to decide what kind of guy he is. 4 of the stories chronicle the amazing desert endurance race series. The first tale covers the brutal Atacama event in great detail. Those pages I was captivated by. But the next 3 races he basically glosses over and tells us few details beyond where he was placing, and a few points on how he was feeling. I don't even know how many miles most of these events were. Why not include a few facts too? Those 4 races alone, interspersed with a few more personal accounts of how he became the runner he is - his friendship with Topher and his marriage to his wife - would have created an epic book written by an amazing runner.

But instead, we're left with fluff that comes off as "look how great everything I do is."

If you want a great book with short stories on running, check out the Runners World anthology "Going Long." Now that is a collection of short stories on Running.

Fast read, not as good as Ultra Marathon Man. Seems like there is a lot of padding with short stories, ok read not great.

It's rare to find an athlete who is as good with words as he is with his body. Dean Karnazes might be the exception. In this, his third book, he shares 26.2 tales of life as an ultramarathoner. From trekking across the Sahara to running for 48 hours straight on a treadmill on display in a New York City window, Karno (as he's affectionately known) bares his soul and his blisters to his loyal fans.

Karnazes writes with a combination of poetry and tell-it-like-it-is imagery (if you're squeamish about bodily fluids, you may want to skip a few chapters). Through his honest self-reflection I finally understand WHY he runs. At no time does he feel so alive as when he's lying in a puddle of the aforementioned bodily fluids, trying to roust himself to run one more (or a hundred more) miles. He loves it. It's like going to the edge of death and back again and again.

Whether you're a casual runner, a couch potato, or a dedicated ultramarathoner, there's something for you in Run! But be careful - reading it just might change you.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Not as Outrageous as Ultramarathon Man 7 mars 2011
Par takingadayoff - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
Dean Karnazes' first book, Ultramarathon Man: Confessions of an All-Night Runner, has an easy style, written as if he had nothing to lose. Although I read that book several years ago, I still laugh when I recall his story about having a pizza delivered in the middle of the night as he ran along a barren highway. The picture of a runner balancing an entire pizza and a cheesecake, along with a thermos of coffee, and consuming them while continuing to run - was he pulling our leg? True or not, it's a great story.

Karnazes has lost some of that easy storytelling style in his most recent book, Run! The writing is a bit more self-conscious, as if he's aware now of being a Writer. And it seems he told all his best stories in the first book, because the tales here are padded and not very outrageous. They would be good stories told among friends over a beer, but many tend to fall flat in print. For instance, he tells of trying a balloon-like device that allows him to run while floating on water. He takes it to the beach and onto the water, to the astonishment of sunbathers and small children. Offshore he encounters a fin in the water - a shark! But no, it's just a sunfish and there's no danger after all. And that's it.

There are some good entries here, such as his account of entering four desert races on four continents in one year, including a harrowing competition in Antarctica.

Karnazes introduces the book as 26.2 chapters that will coalesce to tell a complete tale. The individual chapters seem like blog posts that are self-contained. The whole was no greater than the sum of its parts and the parts could be read in any order.

Run! is a pleasant read, if not as memorable as Ultramarathon Man.
