When Anthony L. Copeland-Parker and his partner Catherine were in their fifties, they learned that he needed a heart-valve replacement, and she had early-onset Alzheimer's. Their past experience as endurance athletes lead them to react accordingly—to sell their home, retire from their jobs, and become nomads, running marathons and half-marathons all over the world.

Anthony L. Copeland-Parker’s Running All Over the World began as a blog written during his travels, a nonfiction account of his five-plus years of flying, running, walking, sailing, and sightseeing with his partner Catherine—from Atlanta to Antarctica and back again. Part travelogue and part medical memoir, Anthony’s writing transports readers to exotic places like Madagascar, Bhutan, and the Great Wall of China while providing a look at the day-to-day realities of living out of a suitcase.

Running All Over the World is an offbeat story about life and love, recounting the trials and tribulations of an ex-pilot with a passion for vistas and logistics and a woman so tough she walks a half-marathon in the Australian Outback mere weeks after breaking her ankle. During their years as nomads, Anthony and Catherine tested the physical and mental limits of their bodies and finished every race hand in hand.
