In Episode 38, Don and I speak with the incredibly inspirational, ANTHONY COPELAND PARKER. When Tony and his partner, Catherine Elizabeth Popp, were in their 50’s, they found that he needed a heart-valve replacement, and she had early-onset Alzheimer’s. They both had a history as endurance athletes, so their reaction to the news was to sell their home, retire from their jobs, and become nomads, running marathons and half- marathons all over the world. That's also when Tony began writing his blog, PlayHard-HaveFun.com.
Since then, he and his partner Catherine have traveled to 82 different countries. They have run at least a half-marathon in thirty-five countries and on all seven continents. Tony has also written a book, Running All Over The World, Our Race Against Early Onset Alzheimer’s. Due out June 15, 2021.
This is truly a special story. You will be moved and motivated to move!!
