From this interview . . .
Dean talks about hi 525k run through Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, and Kazakstan.
The U.S. State Department sent him to run 525 kilometers on the ancient Silk Road through Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, and Kazakhstan. He ran through the desert in 110°f temps with a support crew that only spoke Russian. The reception from locals was phenomenal but it did require him to drink a courtesy bowl of fermented horse milk. 😂
