Super runner Dean Karnazes – who recently ran 50 marathons in 50 days – gives Wired magazine a list of strategies he’s used to train and push himself on his long distance running feats, like his eating habits:
You wouldn’t believe the stuff Karnazes consumes on a run. He carries a cell phone and regularly orders an extra-large Hawaiian pizza. [...] He’ll chase the pizza with cheesecake, cinnamon buns, chocolate Ã©clairs, and all-natural cookies. [...] When he’s not in the midst of some record-breaking exploit, Karnazes maintains a monkish diet, eating grilled salmon five nights a week. He strictly avoids processed sugars and fried foods – no cookies or doughnuts. He even tries to steer clear of too much fruit because it contains a lot of sugar. [This approach] makes him look forward to running a race, because he can eat whatever he wants.
arnazes also only sleeps about 4 hours a night and uses Krazy Glue on his blisters. This one’s a fascinating look into the mind and methods of a
crazy person committed to pushing the limits of human capability.

One of my all time favourite UK TV shorts is now available online, and each Friday I will bring you a new episode. Check back each week for a new one!
Let today’s lesson begin:
Thanks for the tip pp!
A really special thing is happening over at ClickNathan – he is releasing his book online for the world to read, one chapter a week. Every Monday, devout fans and followers like myself have stopped by to find out what happens next in Annie’s life. It’s not easy waiting 7 days for the next chapter, so as a special Yule treat to you my loyal readers, here are the first 5 chapters in this original series premier:
New York-based Freedom-2 LLC says their ink “will create an expanded market for body art â€” since consumers can be now assured that the tattoo will come off easily and without exorbitant cost.”
“I think it will open a floodgate for people who want tattoos,” says Dr. Bruce Saal, a Los Gatos, Calif., dermatologist who specializes in laser tattoo removal and has invested in the company. “People will say, ‘I want to do something a little wild. Now that I know it’s not a lifelong commitment, I’ll do it.’ ”
How does it work? This revolutionary ink — only available in black for now — is encapsulated in microscopic polymethylmethacrylate beads (the same synthetic material used to make surgical glue) that fall apart when exposed to laser energy, after which the body’s natural ability to expel foreign particles kicks in and does the rest.
How much will it cost? Freedom-2′s CEO predicts the ink should only add about $50 to the cost of an average tattoo.
I hope everyone is having as wonderful a day as I’ve had. And to my familie in England and South Africa, I miss you so much!!
