I enjoyed seeing great parts of the world from an athlete and adventure traveler's point of view. It wouldn't be much fun to watch a guy put together his transition bags, but to find great alternative adventures is that much better. The best part of the series is Dean's modest approach to enjoying the spirit of endurance racing. It makes endurance events seem that much more accessible to anyone considering participating in such an uplifting endeavor. At the same time, profiling athletes that are more focused on result than finishing proves that unlike other professional athletics, in endurance events everyone is competing on the same playing field and experience the same "game day" decisions. To bring this element of endurance events to the TV screen is great.
I am a person who wishes he could do these types of adventures. It is great to watch Dean compete and interview normal endurance athletes who are just trying to finish. I also like the added sights at these events. The one where Dean bungee jumped off that bridge in South Africa was insane. I could not do that. He even had to take a zip line out to the middle of the bridge. This is all done under the bridge. I of course love the Ironman triathlons. My dream is to complete an Ironman event. I have done Half Ironman triathlons and they are tuff. I could not imagine trying to do twice the distance. His trip to Jamaica for a three day ride was good too. Dean looks down to earth and a nice guy that you could just talked to.
