RACING THE CLOCK Running Across a Lifetime

by | Read by Fred Sanders

Biography & Memoir • 6.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Narrator Fred Sanders has big pipes, which is lucky, since the memoir he performs is by a man who has gulped a lot of air. Heinrich once ran 156 miles in 24 hours. At age 79, he still routinely wins his age category. A biologist, he spent his life in the study of moths, ravens, and himself. Since there's not much of it left, this aging ultra-athlete is now keenly interested in time. Why does the blow fly max out at two weeks, while a recently murdered Arctic clam began life in 1499? What of the oak that lasted 13,000 years? Sanders has the passion and precision for this mortal scientific drama. Most essentially, he has the enthusiasm. From Heinrich he's learned that every finish line--even the last--should be a welcome sight. B.H.C. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2021]
