NEW YORK -- Friday morning, Dean Karnazes will strike out for New York from his native California. His plan: to run the whole route.
His coast-to-coast pilgrimage calls for Karnazes to be on the run, rain or shine, as much as 14 hours daily covering an average of 50 miles to 60 miles.
He'll be under the watchful eye of "Live! With Regis and Kelly," which invited him to make this odyssey and will track his progress every step of the way. After nearly 3,000 miles on the road, he will arrive around May 11 in Manhattan, where he will cross the finish line at the "Live!" studio to be welcomed on the air by co-hosts Regis Philbin and Kelly Ripa.Story:
