- Secrets I Learned Running 50 Marathons in 50 Days - and How You Too Can Achieve Super Endurance!
- By: Dean Karnazes, Matt Fitzgerald
- Narrated by: Dean Karnazes
- Length: 5 hrs and 56 mins
In the Fall of 2006, Dean Karnazes, known as "the Lance Armstrong of the running world", took on the ultimate challenge: running 50 marathons in 50 states in 50 consecutive days. Dean set off in a caravan packed with fellow runners, with nothing more than a roadmap and a determination that defied all physical limitations.
Great book to run to.

Missed the mark
As a runner, I was looking forward to listening to this book, but ended up quite disappointed. While running 50 marathons in 50 days is one heck of an accomplishment, Dean's narration comes accross as self promoting and at times even condesending. Also, he seems like he is almost bored with the narration and would rather be doing something else than telling his story. I had a couple of cases where I was out on a run listening to this book and ended up switching to music which is something I rarely do with many of the running podcasts I regularly listen to. This is a case where I think reading the book would have been better than listening.
