Who Is Coach Z
Yes that’s right folks my brother Scott aka “Scotty Twan” actually has a running coach for this showdown. My early impressions of Coach Z (Tom Zicafoose) is he seems like a great guy. The only problem I see is while he has accomplished some amazing things and seems to be a risk taker choosing to coach Scotty Twan is basically picking the lead horse. I have no doubt he will have my brother in the best possible position to win the race but will that be enough? Here is a synopsis of Coach Z’s accomplishments. He started running in ’84 to lose weight, and his first race was the Mandarin Run 10K on 10/27/84.
“I don’t think I’ve missed more than a month of running since, and all layoffs were due to injury says Coach Z in a recent interview.”
I’ve run more than 500 races so far, and raced over 3,000 miles.
