San Diego, CA: Elevation Culture & Milestone Running
Elevation Culture, Milestone Running, and Warwick's are elated to host a meet and greet, run, chat, raffle, and Running with Sherman book launch with author Christopher McDougall. Will there be prizes? And tasty ales? And heart-soaring donkey videos? Only by reserving your ticked will you ever know.
Santa Barbara, Pt 1: Hazard’s Cyclesport
Meet at Hazard's Cyclesport as 12 noon for a 3 mile fun run along the beach. Afterwards Chris will share a few words about his new book, "Running with Sherman." Special edition Luna Sandals "The Sherman" will be available for purchase as well as Goodr sunglasses and other swag. Refreshments provided while they last, including Pickle Sport Juice.
San Fran: Kepler’s Literary, with Angie Coiro & Baron Park Donkey Project
No better way to celebrate animal-human partnerships than visiting the inspiration for Shrek's best friend. We'll visit Palo Alto's beloved donkeys in the morning, then head to Kepler's in the afternoon to hear how Sherman fought his way back from captivity.
NOTE: Tickets are required.
Corte Madera: Book Passage
I'm stoked to return to Book Passage, site of one of the biggest barefoot runs I ever hosted back when "Born to Run" was new. This time, I'll be screening some rockin' short vids of Sherman in action and telling the story of his unreal transformation from death watch to mountain racing.
Ashland, OR: Bloomsbury Books
I'll be speaking at Bloomsbury Books and maaaaaybeee joining a fun run earlier in the evening with Rogue Valley Runners. At least I hope so, but I haven't talked to Hal Koerner yet. Updates coming!
Portland, OR: Powell’s Books at Cedar Hills Crossing
So technically it's not really Portland but actually Beaverton. Powell's tells me the Cedar Hills location is actually one of their biggest but I don't know, kinda feels like they're exiling me to the suburbs. Whatever, let's pack the joint and show them that donkeys bring in the good people.
Nov 15: Richmond Marathon Expo with Chop Suey Books
Christopher will be speaking at the Richmond Marathon expo and presenting free, magical, anti-cramping, personal-best-guaranteeing Sherman tattoos.
