Tea with Dean Karnazes: Moorish Mint, Wuyi Oolong
Dean runs a marathon every single day. Seriously. Then he comes home, makes breakfast for his kids, and then gets down to writing. He writes books about endurance, with the goal of inspiring others to do like him: live an actualized life. That is, live a life that you’re meant to live. We enjoy a pot of Moorish Mint (caffeine free, because Dean doesn’t need caffeine) and I am blown away at his passion and abilities. A marathon every single day?!
Note: the video is edited down to 10 minutes, but you can listen to the full 45 minute audio interview on iTunes.
