The Perfect Human.

Health, Human Interest by Richard

I followed this link on a whim today and ended up reading/enjoying this whole article. Dean Karnazes is a man who runs a lot, eats a ton (during a race) and barely sleeps. I can’t say it better than this excerpt from the article: “He covered 350 miles without sleeping. (It took more than three days.) He ran the first and only marathon to the South Pole (finishing second), and a few months ago, at age 44, he completed 50 marathons in 50 consecutive days, one in each of the 50 states. (The last one was in New York City. After that, he decided to run home to San Francisco.)”

This guy truly pushes the limits of what the human body is capable of. And to think, it all started when he just got aggravated with life and went for a jog.
