Martin Dugard is a life- long endurance athlete and his new book, To Be a Runner, is coming out in May. As an author, he has created New York Times Bestselling books on Christopher Columbus and Captain Cook while mixing in Chasing Lance, which follows Lance Armstrong’s seventh and last  Tour de France victory. When he’s not writing, Marty can be found running the trails or coaching his high school track and cross country kids. Huddle and I always enjoy catching up with one of the best authors around.
