Can We Run With You, Grandfather? Seven Continents: Seven Decades
In his previous book, Running Hot & Cold, Doug described his journey from couch potato in late middle age to running long-distance races across deserts, mountains, jungles and snow fields in locations as diverse as the Sahara Desert and the polar ice-cap of Greenland. Having completed major events on four of Earth's continents, Can We Run With You, Grandfather? describes Doug's ongoing journey towards his ultimate dream of running at least a half marathon on all seven continents before his 70th birthday. Still living with occasional bouts of anxiety and depression, as well as other health scares, Doug combines his running travels with motivating and inspiring others, of all ages and abilities, to discover the physical and mental health benefits that running can bring. Join Doug as he tackles new adventures including the villages and temples of central Myanmar, the heat of the Australian outback and the frozen wilderness of Antarctica.
