DeAnna Copeland - Social Chairperson

When did you become a member of W.A.R.?

I started running April 29, 2013 and joined W.A.R. the following month.

What kind of races do you run?

I run them all! I've done 5K's, 10K's, 15K's and ten half marathons. I am currently in training for my first full marathon, which will be the inaugural Fort Smith Marathon in February 2015.

What was your favorite race and why?

My favorite race is the Oklahoma City Memorial Half Marathon. It is an honor to run for one of the victims, and the course support is the best I have seen.  This will be my 'Must-Do' race each year.

What interests do you have outside of running?

Nursing school, food, and "The Walking Dead".

Fun Fact (something nobody knows about you):

I'm a licensed pyrotechnician, and I shoot commercial fireworks displays in Arkansas and Oklahoma.
