    Dean Karnazes; A Runner's High.

    Dean Karnazes; A Runner's High.

    Welcome to the Peak Endurance podcast! Episode 115 is an interview with Dean Karnazes. Dean is a two-time New York Times bestselling author and an icon in the running world. TIME magazine named Karnazes one of the '100 Most Influential People in the World.' An internationally acclaimed endurance athlete, he is the winner of an ESPN ESPY, a three-time winner of Competitor magazine's Endurance Sports Athlete of the Year award and the recipient of the President's Council on Sports Fitness & Nutrition Lifetime Achievement award. Dean has just put out his latest book ‘A Runner’s High. Older, Wiser, Slower, Stronger.’ The description of his book goes: “In A Runner's High, Karnazes chronicles his return to the Western States 100-Mile Endurance Run in his mid-fifties after first completing the race decades ago. The Western States, infamous for its rugged terrain and extreme temperatures, becomes the most demanding competition of his life, a physical and emotional reckoning and a battle to stay true to one's purpose. Confronting his age, wearying body, career path and life choices, we see Karnazes as we never have before, raw and exposed. A Runner's High is both an endorphin-fuelled page-turner and a love letter to the sport from one of its most celebrated ambassadors.” I have just read this book and I have to agree with this! It is a great read, to be honest I found it hard to put down!! I hope you enjoy our chat about his book and Dean’s running life in general!

Fantastic Podcast

It takes a special talent, to be an outstanding athlete, have a wealth of knowledge and present it in a interesting way

Poor production values

I enjoy your guests but usually don’t make it through an entire episode and will likely unsubscribe. The production
value is so poor that I find listening to the podcast stressful and unpleasant. The incessant background noise from your movements being picked up by your mic, the wild volume swings in your voice as you move around/jostle your mic, the lack of muting at your end, etc. make for a very tough listen. I think you could improve the audio significantly without much effort and suggest you get someone with a bit more experience to show you the basics. Good luck with the podcast!
