Run Like Crazy: 52 Marathons, 52 Weeks, 42 Countries : how Running Changed My Life

Front Cover
Michael Joseph, 2012 - Male long-distance runners - 311 pages

It was the greatest year of my life.

I ran with bulls, danced at festivals, strode across the Great Wall of China and crawled beneath the Great Pyramids. I made my way to the remotest islands, the hottest deserts and the coldest of climates. I was robbed, suffered injuries, got sick and depressed. I covered around 320,000 kilometres by plane, train, boat, bus and car and ran just over 2300 race kilometres. It proved to me that you can do whatever you want to - just find the starting line, believe in yourself, and Run Like Crazy!

When Tristan Miller lost his job as a result of the global economic crisis, he set himself a huge personal challenge. He would spend a year seeing the world, each week running an official marathon in a different country. This is the story of an ordinary man who chased his dream, 42.2 kilometres at a time.

About the author (2012)

He took the opportunity to change his life. Tristan sold off virtually everything he owned, including his St Kilda apartment, to fund his epic globe-trotting adventure, which he undertook to raise money for UNICEF and Facing Africa. He now lives in Melbourne with his wife.
