I’m Mason Coppi. I started running in 2011 and immediately fell in love with the sport. I love running’s challenges, endorphin highs, simplicity, and community. Now I want to give back to the community that has been so supportive of me by helping others on their own running journeys.
In college, I practically majored in running, earning a B.S. in Health Sciences at Furman University. For my major I took courses in nutrition, biomechanics, exercise science, kinesiology, and completed a personal training internship. As a Research Assistant in Furman’s Human Performance Laboratory, I conducted and presented research to help advance the sport by studying running power output. As a NCAA D1 Athlete, I competed in multiple NCAA national championships in cross country. I am currently competing as a mountain and trail runner.
Outside of running, my interests include espresso, movie soundtracks, karaoke, dancing, Stephen King novels, the historical significance of pirates, illustration, hummus, ceramics, cooking, granola, and muesli.
