Why do you run, Jeremy Copeland?

About Jeremy

Welcome to a blog series called “Why do you run?“. I hope to publish inspiring insights from runners I know, on why they started running and continue to do so.

Jeremy is the lead pastor of STORYCHURCH, an awesome church community in Durham, NC. I had the privilege of being part of the launch team and having a little input into how it’s grown today.

What isn’t particularly obvious when you first meet Jeremy is his insanely competitive side. I can’t tell you how many times I went out to run only because he might pass me on the Nike leader board. Wait… who’s competitive?

Why did you start running?

For health reasons.

What keeps you motivated?

The competitive part of Nike Run!

What is the most important thing you’ve learnt as a runner?

It’s worth it, even when I don’t feel like it. I’ve never regretted a run.

If you couldn’t run, what would you do instead?

Fly. I’d want to have wings.

What’s your biggest running goal?

Healthy heart, healthy weight.
