Alan Piercy is a native of Columbia, South Carolina – one of the great Southern cities (pay no heed to the scoffing of Charlestonians). Since “moving North” in 2010 he has made his home among the hordes of relocated Yankees and Mid-Westerners in Raleigh, North Carolina – many of whom he considers wonderful friends (and one of whom he was fortunate enough to marry).
His narrative of the 2008 JFK 50 Mile ultra-marathon was profiled in Marathon & Beyond Magazine. He is currently working on a book project about University of South Carolina athletics in the years between membership in the ACC and the SEC (1971 – 1991), tentatively titled “The Wilderness”.
