Dean Karnazes On Dedicating Your Life To Achieving The Impossible

Scale Up With Nick Bradley

Named by TIME magazine as one of the “100 Most Influential People in the World,” Dean Karnazes has pushed his body and mind to inconceivable limits. Among his many accomplishments, he has run 50 marathons, in all 50 US states, in 50 consecutive days. He’s run across Death Valley in the middle of summer, and he’s run a marathon to the South Pole. Dean joins Nick to talk about his incredible running career, the ways in which he has conditioned his mind and body to adapt to the toughest challenges, and how by dedicating yourself to a pursuit completely, you too can achieve the impossible. KEY TAKEAWAYS As we grow older, we start to develop different rhythms when it comes to energy levels. This can largely be due to our intake, and require constant adjustment. These days, many treat running as some kind of objective-based activity in which a certain metric has to be attained. But running, or any physical activity, should also be fun. Remember to use activity as an enjoyable form of play. Our bodies are machines. If we view ourselves as limitless in potential, and work to achieve greatness, then the way we feed ourselves and treat ourselves, as animals, can shape the potential we achieve. When you have harmonious inner personal relationships with those around us, your performance is better. Everything is better. If you have discord, it disrupts your performance. BEST MOMENTS 'People quantify every run. For me, the only purpose for a lot of my runs is just to run' 'I view myself through the lens of trying to be the best animal that I can be' 'I like to say that if I can't pick it from a tree, dig it from the earth, or catch it with my hands, then I don't eat it' 'Look to optimise your relationships. Discord can affect your performance' VALUABLE RESOURCES Scale Up with Nick Bradley: scaleup.vip/podcast Scale Up Your Business, coaching/consulting: https://suyb.global Join the free Scale Up Your Business community: scaleup.vip/community To download a free gift from Nick - The 5 Reasons Why Your Business Will Never Get To 8-Figures ... How To Fix It Fast! - https://www.scaleupmastermind.com/free-guide1 Take the SUYB Predictable Growth Assessment™, to measure your current business performance and show you where to focus next to get to where you want to be: https://scaleup.vip/PredictableGrowthAssessment Dean Karnazes - https://ultramarathonman.com ABOUT THE HOST  Nick Bradley is a renowned entrepreneur, investor, speaker, and business growth expert.

Don't sit down (feat. Dean Karnazes) #366

Zestology: Energy, Vitality and Motivation

Dean Karnazes is a celebrated Ultra Marathon Runner. In fact they call him Ultra MarathonMan because he’s broken so many boundaries. So on this podcast: How to move all day long, without stopping Optimizing your diet for longevity and health as you get older What to do if you want to run like Dean but have dodgy knees And lots more THIS SHOW IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY: Masszymes by BiOptimizers - It’s a best-in-class supplement loaded with full spectrum enzymes for digesting proteins, starches, sugars, fibers, and fats. Your natural ability to digest food declines with age. This is because your body produces fewer enzymes — which are the proteins responsible for digesting food. Fewer enzymes means more difficulty digesting food. Even organic foods won’t provide enough enzymes to properly digest them. This is especially true if you cook your food because cooking kills enzymes. This is why you may have digestion problems even after a healthy meal. Your body just can’t produce enough enzymes to get the job done! This is where supplementing with a high quality enzyme supplement can be a huge help. I personally recommend Masszymes by BiOptimizers. Taking Masszymes daily helps top off your enzyme levels and replace the enzymes your body is no longer producing. Which means you’ll be able to eat all sorts of delicious foods and digest them quickly and effortlessly. After you start taking Masszymes, you may notice that you no longer feel bloated after meals and that your belly feels flatter. And if you have a leaky gut, Masszymes could reduce gut irritation and help you absorb more nutrients. Verified buyer Mike C. gave Masszymes a 5-star rating, saying, “It has definitely helped me address digestion and health issues.” Listen, life is too short to suffer from digestion problems. Try Masszymes risk-free and see what improvements you notice. For an exclusive offer for my listeners just go to www.masszymes.com/zestology and use the code ZESTOLOGY10 for a 10% discount. Oh, and one more thing… For a limited time BiOptimizers is also giving away free bottles of their best-selling products P3OM and HCL with select purchases only while supplies last so hurry and order now if you want the free gifts!! So go to www.masszymes.com/zestology now to get your exclusive 10% discount, plus the chance to get more than $50 worth of supplements for free.

Episode 174 - DCR Summer edition with Dean Karnazes and Lucy Bartholomew (2018)

Dirt Church Radio Trail Running

So we were out on a run on the weekend thinking about how best to kick off 2022. We’ve both got a bit on for the next couple of weeks, with some cool adventures and family holidays planned. We were going back over the catalog and remembered that we’ve had some cool guests over the years that a bunch of you might not have heard. So for the next two weeks we are going to be replaying three of those interviews as sort of a greatest hits collection. We plan to be back up to full speed January 19th. This week we are going to give you a sweet double header. We’ll take waaay back to our 7th ever episode for a conversation with ultra running legend Dean Karnazes. Then we’ll head on over to episode 14 and our discussion with Australian powerhouse Lucy Bartholemew. Dean Karnazes Over a 25 year career Dean has run more ultramarathons that one can count, set various endurance records, gained 11 one day buckles at Western States Endurance Run and has been a previous Badwater winner. Dean is a best-selling author, having written five books detailing his life and adventures whilst running, including his epic 50/50 - which detailed Dean running 50 Marathons in 50 states of the USA in 50 days and The Road To Sparta, which details his odyssey leading up to and including the Spartathlon in Greece. His latest book, A Runner’s High, covers Dean’s return to Western States after a long absence. Perhaps what Dean is best known for is his unrelenting positivity, advocacy, and love of running, activity and inspiring others to move and challenge what they thought possible.  Lucy Bartholemew What were you up to when you were 22? Possibly (probably) not coming third at Western States Endurance Run and travelling the world exploring, running for Salomon, and espousing your passion for a plant-based diet like Lucy Bartholomew. Lucy joined us for a wide ranging conversation about her history with the sport, her ongoing successes and her beliefs that truly social and positive media can enhance experience, enjoyment and connection for young women rather than take away from it. Enjoy!
