This man is simply amazing

Not only is he an ultra marathoner, he also completed 50 marathons in 50 states in 50 consecutive days. Well ladies and gentlemen, Dean Karnazes is at it again; he is currently almost 12 hours into his attempt to break the world record of most miles ran in 48 consecutive hours.

According to the Guiness Book of World Records, it looks like there is not a current record for the most miles ran consecutively in 48 hours. A man by the name of Erwin Valdenbito from Santiago City, Chile however, currently holds the record for most miles ran in 24 hours. He established the record April 12-13, 2007 with a distance of 247.68 km (or 153.9 miles).

On Thursday, September 18, 2008, Dean will finish up his world record attempt! He is truly an inspirational, albeit crazy, runner and I wish him the best of luck throughout the next day and a half!
