Dean was named by Time magazine as one of the ‘Top 100 Most Influential People In The World’, though he says that the voting was rigged.
He has pushed his body and mind to inconceivable limits including running 350 continuous miles, foregoing sleep for three nights. He’s also run across Death Valley in 120 degree temperatures, and he’s run a marathon to the South Pole in negative 40 degrees. On ten different occasions, he’s run a 200-mile relay race solo, racing alongside teams of twelve.
