Over the past few weeks, we have introduced (and re-introduced!) the members of our awesome coaching team. We’ve found out why they run and some fun facts that could spark a conversation during your next group run! This week, we continue our series with our Ten Mile Challenge Coach, Coach Steve, and Assistant Coach, Coach Mark!

Why do you run? I started to get into better shape. But I realized I was not advancing when running on my own. I joined the Pacers, was welcomed with open arms, and found a really great community of nice folks with a common goal/passion. I’m still running to stay/get in shape but the social aspect of the Pacers is awesome. Just a terrific group of folks
Favorite post run snack/meal? Breakfast!
Running Mantra: None, really.
