 married to his beautiful wife Tori. He enjoys traveling and running. He has been running long distance for about 3 years. He has completed 3 marathons (2 road and 1 trail) and 5 half-marathons. Coach Nieman’s goal is to run 50k then a 50 miler. He enjoys running, especially long distance running because it teaches you a lot about trusting the process and pushing yourself mentally. He truly believes that anyone who is willing to work hard can be a great runner, you just have to work hard and put in the time training. He enjoys seeing the kids work hard and do more than they thought they could.
