I am an ultrarunner. I was born in Poland. I have an accent. Some find it charming, some find it annoying. I own it. I live in the Midwest where many people are not use to hearing foreign accents, and for some of my friends I am their token “foreign friend.”
Aneta (Nettie) Zeppettella grew up in Poland, but has been calling Ohio home for almost two decades. Nettie wrote simulation software in her previous life, but now she splits her time between string of part time jobs, being swim and synchro mom, running trails, and directing ultramarathons for her local running club.
