And for all you intellectual Heifers out there, my BFF DeanKarnazes is jumping out of his awesome-skin to send you a signed copy of his book, "The Road To Sparta."

The Road to Sparta is a thunderous Greek epic told in parallel narratives from the perspective of a modern ultramarathoner and an ancient hemerodromoi (daylong runner). Dean Karnazes explores his own Greek ancestry while consulting with the foremost scholars on Ancient Greece to tell the story of the world's first marathon, all while recreating the historic 153-mile run from Athens to Sparta in one of the world's most impossible feats—the Spartathlon.

In 490 BCE, Pheidippides ran a similar route in 36 hours to recruit the Spartans into battle against the invading Persians. In doing so, he forever preserved Western culture and gave to us the modern marathon. In recreating the ancient journey, Karnazes consumed only foods available in 490 BCE, such as figs, olives, cured meat and an early Greek energy source called itrion while he trained and prepared in traditional hoplite costume.

The Road to Sparta offers readers a rare glimpse into the mindset and motivation of an extreme athlete. It is sure to captivate and inspire readers whether they run great distances, modest distances, or not at all.
