Review by Clementine on 4th May, 2011
 
5 stars "More epic tales from Dean."

I've read all of Karnazes books, being a budding ultra runner and again he delivers. These stories both instill a bit of fear and a lot of inspiration to get out and just run!

From the downright hilarious to the truly profound, the linked stories in Run! create an unforgettable tableau, providing readers with the ultimate escape and offering a rare glimpse into the mind-set and motivation of an extreme athlete. Karnazes addresses the pain and perseverance and also charts his emotional state as he pushes the edges of human achievement.
