He once ran 50 marathons, in all 50 states, in 50 consecutive days. He's run for hundreds of hours without rest and was called a real superhero by Stan Lee. In A Runner's High, Karnazes chronicles his return to the Western States 100-Mile Endurance Run in his mid-50's after first completing the race decades ago. The Western States is infamous for its rugged and remote terrain and extreme temperatures, and becomes one the most demanding competitions of Karnazes's life, a physical and emotional reckoning with himself and what it means to stay true to one's purpose, mile after mile. Confronting his age, his career path, and his life choices, we see Karnazes as we never have before. In the end, there is no end. He lives for the journey.
