Endurance For Life Newsletter
June 4, 2009 Vol. 1 Issue 2

Greetings Athletes,

In the 2nd Edition of the Dean Karnazes' Endurance For Life Newsletter we have some exciting information including Karno updates, new event announcements, and of course fitness tips and recipes for all you endurance heads. First, congratulations to Dean for completing his eighth straight 199-mile run from Calistoga to Santa Cruz in “The Relay”. While the race is intended for 12 person teams, Team Dean seems to make the “double century” run look easier every year. Big high fives to Dean and the rest of “The Relay” participants for continuing to bring awareness and much needed funding to the race’s official charity “Organs R’ Us”. To learn more about The Relay and the charity visit www.therelay.com.

A little "Deanspiration" - "Getting motivated can be really tough, especially when you're not motivated."

Did you know?
ORAC is a measurement of a food’s antioxidant capacity. Oranges have a score of 2,000, Red Apples 4,000, and Blueberries over 9,000. The so-called “Superfruits” (e.g., Acai, Goji, Mangosteen) can have values exceeding 20,000! .

Quick Take:
Stepped on gum? What runner hasn’t, arrr! Before attempting to wipe or scrape it off, take a piece of ice to it. The gum will chip away effortlessly and easily, saving you time (and gooey fingers!).
