Tyler Cooper would fall in the category of "late bloomer". At 35 years old, he ran his first race at the Omaha 2014 Corporate Cup to support his employer. He quickly fell in love with the sport, but his zealousness would just as quickly plague him with injuries when he went from virtually no runner to a half marathoner in nine days. It was during this time that his path crossed with fellow Team Nebraska Members. Under their mentorship, he has been able to establish a healthy running routine and experience some personal record success in 2015. He plans to continue to reap the benefits of Team Nebraska experience to become a competitive runner by the time he reaches the master's class.
