Runners will be inspired and fascinated reading about Mark Covert who has run every day for 45 straight years, how Pam Reed won the Badwater Ultramarathon, and Dean Karnazes ran 50 marathons in fifty states over 50 days, how Larry Macon set four world records for the most marathons in a calendar year, and Amy Winters-Palmiero ran and finished Badwater with a prosthetic leg. These are just some of the incredible and inspiring achievements of the endurance athletes profiled in "Running to Extremes: The Legendary Athletes of Ultrarunning. Each one of these athletes has pushed the limits of human endurance to become an inspiration for people around the world. Their achievements are profiled in individual chapters, each introduced by prominent ultrarunners and friends. In addition to the most prolific endurance athletes in the world today, one section is dedicated to the Father of American Ultrarunning, Ted Corbitt. Including a foreword by his son, Gary Corbitt, and a special section on his life and achievements, Running to Extremes serves to preserve his legacy. Whether you are an ultrarunner yourself or a casual runner, a fan, a historian, or a scholar, Running to Extremes and the incredible people and their stories in it will inspire you and ignite your passion for living life to the fullest. Above all, this Whos Who of ultrarunning proves one thing: The impossible is possible!
