Running All Over the World – A Race Against Early-Onset Alzheimer's

What do marathon runners do when one needs open-heart surgery and the other is diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer's? Would you believe, retire from their jobs, sell their home, and become nomads running all over the world?

That's exactly what today's guest, Tony Copeland-Parker, and his partner, Catherine Popp did back in 2015. 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. It became available on June 15, 2021.

The reason for running all over the world was to maintain Catherine's cognitive functions for as long as possible. Most of us understand the health & cognitive benefits of exercise so why not continue their love of marathon running?

Reading Tony's book will inspire you to add movement to your health care routine. If he and Cat can manage world travels the majority of us can strive to move more for our own brain health.
