Why do you run, Zach Koontz?

About Zach

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.

Zach is a good friend from church. When he moved to Morrisville and decided to enter a half Ironman, we (MRC) were able to help him train — for the running part.

About Nila

First of all, welcome to a new 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.

I met Nila a couple of years ago on facebook when I asked if it was OK for a man to join what seemed like a ladies only running club called MRC (Morrisville Run Club).

Fortunately for me, men were allowed to join, and I have met up to run with the group regularly ever since. I did find out later I was held with some suspicion at the beginning.

Nila started the Morrisville Run Club along with Niles. I am indebted to them both for this wonderful community of runners who continue to inspire and push me forward.
