Running Americas is an inspiring story of an everyday guy who decides to drastically change his outlook and approach to life. After realising that an unfulfilling life in London was only going to end in resentment and unhappiness, he hatched a plan to change the trajectory of his life and ensure his passions were his priorities. The adventure that unfolded was a solo and unsupported run from Vancouver to Buenos Aires with no specific training, no major sponsor and very scant logistically planning. 17 000km Run-equivalent to 403 marathons-consist of 367 running days, each averaging 46km. The route he took follows the Pacific Coast and Pan American Highway as it weaves down through North, Central and South America. In Chile, he turned east, and after crossing the Andes set his target for Buenos Aires. He wears 17 pairs of running shoes, burning over 4500 calories per day. Pushing everything needed to survive in an unmodified baby stroller, he had to navigate his way over the Sea of Cortez, around the infamous Darien Gap, through Atacama Desert and across the Andes. Long spells of loneliness, severe dehydration, continuous bouts of food poisoning and contracting intestinal parasite all added to the daily challenges he had to overcome. While running was the backbone of this adventure, book will also share wonderful experiences he shares with strangers in every country he visit. From the generosity of Clemente, also known as Angel of Desert, to running with school kids in Mexico, book will be brought to life through each and every interaction, restoring your faith in humanity. This is not a book of records or firsts, but a journey purely fuelled by passion for running and adventure, giving extraordinary detail into logistical, physical and mental strength needed to overcome perceived impossible. This story hops to awaken Adventurer in us all and show how we can all live out our dreams if we approach them with the right frame of mind and with unquestioning determination. Jamie Ramsay is a British endurance adventurer who has travelled over 21 000km solo and unsupported through 21 different countries. Born and raised in Scotland, Jamie graduated from Oxford Brookes with a degree in Economics and Information Systems before heading to the City to forge a career at a top international communications consultancy. After twelve years and being promoted to Partner, Jamie made the decision to quit his job and focus on his passions for running, travelling and adventure, resulting in his Running Americas Adventure in 2014. Since completing Running Americas Adventure at the end of 2015, he has gone on to set record for running the entire 700km UK Three Peaks, solo cycle 3700km from Sao Paulo to La Paz and run Scottish Isles. He is currently preparing for the GORE-TEX Transalpine Run while planning new running adventures for 2018 and beyond. Today was a big day for me on two fronts.
