A Runner's High: Older, Wiser, Slower, Stronger Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Dean Karnazes has pushed his body and mind to inconceivable limits, from running in the shoe-melting heat of Death Valley to the lung-freezing cold of the South Pole. He's raced and competed across the globe and once ran 50 marathons, in 50 states, on 50 consecutive days.
In A Runner's High, Karnazes chronicles his return to the Western States 100-Mile Endurance Run in his mid-50s 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 story and a love letter to the sport from one of its most celebrated ambassadors.

After reading the Road to Sparta I got up and ran 100 miles to honour Pheidippides and the ability of Dean to put into words the experience of that journey.
This book is more of the same. As I enter my 68th year questions Dean is asking of himself are the same as mine and the answers are the same. We are kindred spirits and your journey Dean is inspiring
