“You are very much in the here and now. Just take your next footstep to the best of your ability. My commitment is to be the best that I can be.” ~ Dean Karnazes
I think we’re born to run,” said Dean Karnazes to the Sacramento NHS guests on September 7, 2017 about the Greeks. The ultramarathoner shared that he never sits down. He performs several 10 to 12-minute sets of very high intensity exercise throughout the day in addition to running. He’s also conditioned his entire body and never had an overuse injury.
Karnazes made the trip from the SF Bay Area to Sacramento before heading to Greece to launch the Greek translation of his latest book, The Road to Sparta, as well as celebrate the fifth anniversary of the award-winning Navarino Challenge (Official Host/Ambassador), run the fabled Spartathlon, and cool down in the Santorini Experience.
NHS Washington, DC co-hosted the fabulous Col. Rose Mary Sheldon at the International Spy Museum. Sheldon, author of Ambush: Surprise Attack in Ancient Greek Warfare and Espionage in the Ancient World captivated the audience by discussing the art of ancient Greek espionage.
