American Dean Kaznares is on the leading the Atacama Desert race. I am a huge fan of Dean, and really who isn’t. I was thrilled to hear he is attempting his next adventure the Desert Grand Slam. There is something amazing about Dean, I have been reading his blog quite a bit looking for inspirations and advise for my upcoming races and I am just in awe of his accomplishments. That in the fact that I have a huge crush on him, people that know me are aware that I am one of the few people that hardly ever is starstruck, I grew up in show business and at the end of the day everybody is like everybody else just very talented at a high profile profession, with Dean however is different, I am embarrassed to say, I seriously though about “borrowing permanently” his Oakley sunglasses ad at the Phoenix airport.
I highly recommend checking Dean's blog and the Atacama race report, even if you never plan on running anything close to what he is running I find it helps me focus in the basics, such as even if you are an elite athlete like Dean you win races (or take on a challenge) just by concentrating in putting one foot in front of an other one step at the time.
